Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now. Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes. In Attached, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways: *ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back. *AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness. *SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving. Attached guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, Attached offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.

Few other countries are so interrelated with the World around us in political, economic, and social respects as the Netherlands. This means that the Dutch government needs to be alert in its response to the risks and opportunities presented by a rapidly changing world. Addressing this issue, The Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) is offering some reflections in this report, guided by the question how the Netherlands can develop a foreign policy strategy that matches the changing power relations in the world and the radically changed character of international relations. The answer.

Becoming Attached

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 0195115015
Release Date: 1994
Genre: Psychology

The struggle to understand the infant-parent bond ranks as one of the great quests of modern psychology, one that touches us deeply because it holds so many clues to how we become who we are. How are our personalities formed? How do our early struggles with our parents reappear in the way we relate to others as adults? Why do we repeat with our own children--seemingly against our will--the very behaviors we most disliked about our parents? In Becoming Attached, psychologist and noted journalist Robert Karen offers fresh insight into some of the most fundamental and fascinating questions of emotional life. Karen begins by tracing the history of attachment theory through the controversial work of John Bowlby, a British psychoanalyst, and Mary Ainsworth, an American developmental psychologist, who together launched a revolution in child psychology. Karen tells about their personal and professional struggles, their groundbreaking discoveries, and the recent flowering of attachment theory research in universities all over the world, making it one of the century's most enduring ideas in developmental psychology. In a world of working parents and makeshift day care, the need to assess the impact of parenting styles and the bond between child and caregiver is more urgent than ever. Karen addresses such issues as: What do children need to feel that the world is a positive place and that they have value? Is day care harmful for children under one year? What experiences in infancy will enable a person to develop healthy relationships as an adult?, and he demonstrates how different approaches to mothering are associated with specific infant behaviors, such as clinginess, avoidance, or secure exploration. He shows how these patterns become ingrained and how they reveal themselves at age two, in the preschool years, in middle childhood, and in adulthood. And, with thought-provoking insights, he gives us a new understanding of how negative patterns and insecure attachment can be changed and resolved throughout a person's life. The infant is in many ways a great mystery to us. Every one of us has been one; many of us have lived with or raised them. Becoming Attached is not just a voyage of discovery in child emotional development and its pertinence to adult life but a voyage of personal discovery as well, for it is impossible to read this book without reflecting on one's own life as a child, a parent, and an intimate partner in love or marriage.

No Strings Attached

Genre: Juvenile Fiction

How many strings will fray before a family business falls apart? Nancy, George, and Bess are going on a vacation to Paris, and Nancy’s father pulled a few strings to get the girls some quaint accommodations: a tiny top-floor flat in a small three-story house on the Ile Saint Louis. The first floor of the building is a puppet theater, museum, and shop, owned by twenty-seven-year-old Mimi Loiseau, who lives on the second floor. Mimi’s great-grandmother had always hinted at a unique family treasure, but she died before she could tell Mimi what, or where, it was. Now someone is stealing puppets and vandalizing apartments. Could this someone be looking for the long-lost treasure? Nancy’s on the scene just in time to help save Mimi’s business—and to make sure they all get home in one piece!

Local Zeta Functions Attached to the Minimal Spherical Series for a Class of Symmetric Spaces

Author: Nicole Bopp
Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
ISBN: 9780821836231
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Mathematics

The aim of this paper is to prove a functional equation for a local zeta function attached to the minimal spherical series for a class of real reductive symmetric spaces. These symmetric spaces are obtained as follows. We consider a graded simple real Lie algebra $\widetilde{\mathfrak g}$ of the form $\widetilde{\mathfrak g}=V^-\oplus \mathfrak g\oplus V^+$, where $[\mathfrak g,V^+]\subset V^+$, $[\mathfrak g,V^-]\subset V^-$ and $[V^-,V^+]\subset \mathfrak g$. If the graded algebra is regular, then a suitable group $G$ with Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$ has a finite number of open orbits in $V^+$, each of them is a realization of a symmetric space $G\slash H_p$.The functional equation gives a matrix relation between the local zeta functions associated to $H_p$-invariant distributions vectors for the same minimal spherical representation of $G$. This is a generalization of the functional equation obtained by Godement} and Jacquet for the local zeta function attached to a coefficient of a representation of $GL(n,\mathbb R)$.

Anxiously Attached

Genre: Psychology

Anxiously attached individuals feel chronically insecure and their relationships are often intense, angry, and enmeshed. In the spectrum of anxious attachment, some people tip into states of acute rumination following specific life events, while an extreme manifestation may be thought of as "borderline borderline" - inescapable brooding, raging, and inability to separate. Preoccupied clients can be difficult to work with, and these therapies often feel stuck or end badly.Anxiously Attached contains four papers presented at a conference in February 2016. They address the origins of anxious attachment in specific features of parent-infant relationships, findings from research about developmental aspects, typical features, concerns, and defences in adults, and how these may be presented in psychotherapy. Enmeshed dynamics in adult relationships, including the therapeutic relationship, are also highlighted, where threat of separation and loss activate intense attachment seeking.The aim is to increase understanding of preoccupied clients from an attachment perspective, to recognise the nature of their anxieties and resistances, and propose specific skills for therapeutic work.Contributors are Dr Amanda Jones (parent-infant psychotherapist), Dr Steve Farnfield (attachment researcher and child therapist), Linda Cundy (attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist) and Anne Power (attachment-based psychotherapist with individuals and couples). Dr Maggie Turp provides the Introduction.

Three Dimensional Attached Viscous Flow

Author: Ernst Heinrich Hirschel
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642413780
Release Date: 2013-10-29
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Viscous flow is treated usually in the frame of boundary-layer theory and as two-dimensional flow. Books on boundary layers give at most the describing equations for three-dimensional boundary layers, and solutions often only for some special cases. This book provides basic principles and theoretical foundations regarding three-dimensional attached viscous flow. Emphasis is put on general three-dimensional attached viscous flows and not on three-dimensional boundary layers. This wider scope is necessary in view of the theoretical and practical problems to be mastered in practice. The topics are weak, strong, and global interaction, the locality principle, properties of three-dimensional viscous flow, thermal surface effects, characteristic properties, wall compatibility conditions, connections between inviscid and viscous flow, flow topology, quasi-one- and two-dimensional flows, laminar-turbulent transition and turbulence. Though the primary flight speed range is that of civil air transport vehicles, flows past other flying vehicles up to hypersonic speeds are also considered. Emphasis is put on general three-dimensional attached viscous flows and not on three-dimensional boundary layers, as this wider scope is necessary in view of the theoretical and practical problems that have to be overcome in practice. The specific topics covered include weak, strong, and global interaction; the locality principle; properties of three-dimensional viscous flows; thermal surface effects; characteristic properties; wall compatibility conditions; connections between inviscid and viscous flows; flow topology; quasi-one- and two-dimensional flows; laminar-turbulent transition; and turbulence. Detailed discussions of examples illustrate these topics and the relevant phenomena encountered in three-dimensional viscous flows. The full governing equations, reference-temperature relations for qualitative considerations and estimations of flow properties, and coordinates for fuselages and wings are also provided. Sample problems with solutions allow readers to test their understanding.

Genre: Family & Relationships

Attached at the Heart offers readers practical parenting advice for the modern age. In its most basic form, "attachment parenting" is instinctive. A crying baby is comforted and kept close to parents for protection. If hungry, he or she is breastfed. And while it is understood that there is no such thing as perfect parenting, research suggests that there is a strong correlation between a heightened sense of respect, empathy, and affection in those children raised the "attachment parenting" way. In this controversial book, readers will gain much needed insight into childrearing while learning to trust the intuitive knowledge of their child, ultimately building a strong foundation that will strengthen the parent-child bond. Using the Eight Principles of Parenting, readers will learn: How to prepare for baby before birth Why breastfeeding is a must for busy moms When to start feeding solid food How to respond to temper tantrums Sleeping safety guidelines and the benefits of cosleeping Tips for short separation How to practice positive discipline and its rewards Tips for finding and maintaining balance The benefits of using a baby sling and implementing infant massage Tips on dealing with criticism from those opposed or unfamiliar with AP style The dangers surrounding traditional discipline styles of parenting Contrary to popular belief, "attachment parenting" has been practiced in one form or another since recorded history. Over the years, it had been slowly replaced by a more detached parenting style—a style that is now believed by experts to be a lead contributing factor to suicide, depression, and violence.

Comprehensive Organic Functional Group Transformations Synthesis carbon with one heteroatom attached by a multiple bond

Release Date: 1995
Genre: Organic compounds

Volume 3 summarises contemporary methods for the synthesis of functional groups where carbon is attached to a heteroatom (notably oxygen, nitrogen, and sulphur) by a double or triple bond. The synthesis of all types of carbon and heteroatom substituted, and unsaturated derivatives are brought together in a coherent fashion, and where possible emphasis has been placed on selectivity and efficiency, together with practical applications in real situations in synthetic chemistry. Thus, the Volume covers synthetic methods for aldehydes and ketones, together with their sulphur (ie. thioaldehydes and thioketones), selenium, tellurium, nitrogen (ie. imines, oximes and hydrazones, including iminium salts and diazo compounds), phosphorus and metal/metalloid analogues. Synthetic methods for heteroatom substituted aldehydes and ketones and their analogues, eg. carbonyl ylides, are also included, and a thorough account of ketenes and ketenimines and their various heteroatom and metal analogues is given. The Volume also covers the unique chemistry associated with the synthesis of nitriles and N-substituted nitriles, together with isonitriles and all their heteroanalogues.
