This unique book explores the details of bonding disorder: the psychopathology of parental attitudes towards forming a relation between the baby and parents. The difficulties in perinatal bonding are one of the most important but unduly neglected issues in the perinatal mental health field. This book introduces the latest knowledge based on unique empirical investigations. As a compilation of papers by Japanese clinical researchers, this book includes conceptual analysis, causes, adverse consequences, and interventions. Each author introduces his or her own original work in addition to ample references from previous studies. The volume will be an excellent resource for researchers, clinicians, and other professionals who support families with infants in the perinatal health field.
