In Chapter 8, we consider the special case of adolescence, a time of high risk for the emergence of serious disturbance. We argue that this is the consequence of an increased load on the mental world of the adolescent, brought on by the sudden leap in cognitive complexity, simultaneously with pressure for separation from the primary attachment figures. ” Both were challenged by the sharply increased complexity of their interpersonal worlds, but once again they followed quite different paths. We maintain that this reflected critical differences in their early experience, which equipped one with a far more robust mentalizing capacity than the other.

Attuned interactions with the parent (Jaffe, Beebe, Feldstein, Crown, and Jasnow 2001; Stern 1985) often involve affect-mirroring—that is, the parent’s use of facial and vocal expression to represent to the child the feelings she assumes him to have in such a way as to reassure and calm rather than intensify his emotions. We see parental affect-mirroring as instrumental in fostering the capacity for affect regulation, through the creation of a second-order representation for constitutional affect states.
