His Regulation Theory, grounded in developmental neuroscience and developmental psychoanalysis, focuses on the origin, psychopathogenesis, and psychotherapeutic treatment of the early forming subjective implicit self. His contributions appear in multiple disciplines, including developmental neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment theory, trauma studies, behavioral biology, clinical psychology, and clinical social work. His groundbreaking integration of neuroscience with attachment theory has lead to his description as "the American Bowlby" and with psychoanalysis as "the world's leading expert in neuropsychoanalysis." His books have been translated into several languages, including Italian, French, German, and Turkish.


"With Affect Regulation Theory, Daniel Hill makes an invaluable contribution to the growing field of psychotherapy that is reflective of a psychobiological perspective. The book is well written, well researched, and comprehensive. For any therapist seeking to broaden his or her theoretical knowledge base, with the ultimate goal of incorporating that information into clinical practice, I recommend reading this book first and foremost." -- Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, clinician, researcher, teacher, and developer of A Psychobiological Approach To Couples Therapy(R) (PACT) "Understanding affect is central to human psychology. From the start, Freud was concerned with the vicissitude of how emotions connected to ideas and to their transformations into symptoms and psychopathology. And yet psychoanalysis has been slow to develop a comprehensive theory of affects. Daniel Hill is a master teacher, and in Affect Regulation Theory he demonstrates how affects and their regulation and dysregulation are central to our sense of agency, authenticity, and interpersonal relations. He grounds his understanding in psychoanalysis, attachment theory, and neurobiology and illuminates the clinical relevance of relational trauma, dissociation, and self-states, thus integrating a comprehensive theory of mind, development, psychopathology, and psychotherapy. This book is essential reading for graduate students and clinicians." -- Lewis Aron, PhD, Director, New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis "Daniel Hill has written a beautiful, user-friendly translation and elaboration of the theories of Allan Schore, Daniel Siegel, and Peter Fonagy. Illustrating with clinical vignettes, Hill integrates affect regulation, early attachment trauma, and theories of neurobiology. This is an excellent book for the working clinician." -- Beatrice Beebe, PhD, Clinical Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, NYS Psychiatric Institute, Columbia Universityq "Affect regulation theory is the surprising meeting ground of neurobiology, developmental psychology, and psychoanalysis. In this important book, Daniel Hill captures its relevance to each of these realms. His book not only enhances our understanding of the physiological basis of emotions but also illuminates how emotional trauma in childhood emerges from prolonged states of dysregulation. Wonderfully comprehensive and engagingly written, this book will be a book to students. But it will also captivate those of us whose education preceded these exciting cross-disciplinary developments." -- Robert B. Karen, PhD, author of Becoming Attached and The Forgiving Self "Daniel Hill's Affect Regulation Theory is a superb synthesis of cutting-edge developments in attachment theory and research, mother-infant research, research on mentalization, affect regulation theory, neurobiology, and psychoanalytic theory. Clinically astute and gracefully written, it will be of great interest to clinicians coming from a wide range of theoretical orientations." -- Jeremy D. Safran, PhD, Chair & Professor of Psychology, The New School for Social Research, author of Negotiating the Therapeutic Alliance "An outstanding contribution. This accessible volume offers fresh and compelling perspectives on dissociation, internal working models, trauma, attachment, pathogenesis and more, all through the lens of affect regulation. Drawing on the work of Allan Schore, the author"s emphasis on the role of the implicit self and brilliant integration of neuroscience and theory with clinical practice will hold your interest page after page. Affect Regulation Theory is sure to spark new ways of thinking about your patients and their problems, challenge how you view your role as clinician, and quite possible change the way you practice therapy. Don"t miss it!" -- Pat Ogden, PhD, Founder/Director, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, and author of Trauma and the Body and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
