Allan Schore - Human Nature and Early Experience & "The Neurobiology of a Secure Attachment"

Allan Schore is the leading figure in the neurobiology of attachment and the neuroscience of affect regulation. He, along with Dan Siegel and some others, co-founded the field of interpersonal neurobiology.

I'm am thrilled to have found a full-length lecture from him for attachment theory day here at IOC. However, my experience of him is that he is brilliant, but his talks are dry.

His major books are Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self: The Neurobiology of Emotional Development, Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self/Affect Regulation and the Repair of the Self (two-volume set), and his new book, The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy, which I just received today and look forward to reading.

First up a short video on neuroscience and secure attachment.
