Book Review of "The Origins of Attachment: Infant Research and Adult Treatment" by Beatrice Beebe, PhD and Frank M. Lachmann, PhD

by Shahla Chehrazi, MD


The experience of reading about the process of intrapsychic disturbance as it develops in the infant mind inspired me; it is indeed powerful to almost visualize psychopathology as it is developing and being co-constructed in the mother/infant interaction. Beatrice Beebe and Frank Lachmann achieved the goal if making this come to life in their most recent Publication, The Origins of Attachment: Infant Research and Adult Treatment.

This past December, I had a chance to fly home to Hong Kong for my annual teaching assignment. Teaching aside, which I enjoy tremendously every year, it is my mother's cooking that I look forward to the most. She is not a Michelin-starred chef, does not use the most luxurious or exotic ingredients in her dishes, nor has the plating finesse that you see from home cooks on MasterChef, but somehow she always manages to prepare dishes that gratify both my palate and my soul. Even for the most ordinary dish—such as steamed spare ribs—my mother seems to have that magic touch to season and cook it just the right way and leaves everyone in the family satisfied.

This is home.
