Sample text

As a consequence of the pain and fright, the attachment system is reactivated and consequently he goes to his mother, crying and seeking comfort and assistance. We can then say that the accident has deactivated the child’s exploratory behaviour and activated his attachment behaviour. In a case like this, behavioural systems serve ‘set goals’. This denotes a timelimited event or an ongoing condition, either of which is brought about by specific and relevant conditions. As Bowlby (1969) put it, past discussions of instinctive behaviour have tended to concentrate on sequences that have a dramatic and time-limited outcome, such as orgasm, and to neglect behaviour that has an ongoing relationship outcome, such as distance regulation over a long period.

More than any other branch of medicine or psychology, psychoanalysis concerned itself with the study of emotional life and relationships. Yet the over-riding importance of primary attachment relationships was overshadowed by theories that put sexuality and a hypothetical ‘death instinct’ at the very centre of human motivation. True, a significant number of psychoanalysts discarded the notion of a death instinct and did, indeed, highlight the importance of bonding and relationships, particularly in early development.

A developmental theory In the course of his studies Bowlby realized that a new developmental model was necessary. Existing developmental theories included Freud’s notion of libidinal phases, whereby an energy rooted in the sexual instinct changed the source of sexual excitation (the erotogenic zone) and its object (cathexis) along a line of progression. This progression could be halted (fixation) or reversed (regression), and by virtue of these processes psychopathology emerged. Another influential theory of development was the one proposed by Melanie Klein, whereby early psychic life was seen as dominated by either a paranoid or a depressive position, alternating sequentially.
