OLIVEIRA, Rui Aragão. Do vínculo às relações sociais: Aspectos psicodinâmicos . Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2000, vol.18, n.2, pp.157-170. ISSN 0870-8231.

Regarding the attachment theme, we approached the problem areas associated with early relationships, the representation of the attachment process in various developmental stages, and the psychological relations inherent in the formation of different social systems, fitted in to the dynamic game created by, and for its individual representatives. We started off by broadening our conception of attachment, exceptionally considering contributions by Bowlby, as well as the differences between his approach and the one by Freud and traditional psychoanalysis. We then considered, amongst others, Melanie Klein’s work on the body communication phenomena, which becomes organized in a very early phase of development, and the vicissitudes in object relationships, made up of emotions, fantasies, moments of distress and specific psychological defenses. Finally, we reorganized the concept of attachment according to Wilfred Bion’s conception by emphasizing the idea of the relation between a continent space and the contents, resorting to identifying projective mechanisms and to basic emotions, inherent in the establishment and maintenance of affectionate bonds, with repercussions in the thinking ability and in global human development regarding relationships.
