I would highly recommend the Attachment-Focused Workbook for all clinicians and trainees working with children and youth. . . . I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and using its principles has greatly enriched my psychotherapeutic armamentarium, and it has enabled me to have breakthroughs with families in situations where I have previously been stuck and struggling. — Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (JCACAP)
Hughes writes in a way that is both engaging and easy to read. . . . Any therapist with an interest in Attachment Theory should certainly have this in their library, and it will doubtless appeal to students and interns, as well as seasoned practitioners. — PsychCentral
[T]his workbook offers all the strategies and tools to effectively handle attachment-focused family therapy issues, and to see that issues are effectively address. Any collection catering to therapist will find it engrossing and filled with pointers to success! — Midwest Book Review
This workbook offers a superb integration of attachment theory and neuroscience in a clinical context. It shows through a series of case examples how beautifully attachment-focused therapy works, and makes you feel that it is possible to accomplish great things in difficult cases. Hughes has learned a way to connect with children who are quite disturbed, and who are nonverbal, with such a powerful, deep subcortical force that you can see change happening before your eyes. — Marion Solomon, PhD, author of Narcissism and Intimacy, coauthor of Love and War In Intimate Relationships, and coeditor of Healing Trauma

Hughes lays out a general therapeutic plan to be tailored to the individual client or family. The table of contents shows the theoretical framework therapy follows:
3. Affective-Reflective Dialogue
5. The Deepening Sequential Process of AFFT
6. Repair of the Attachment Relationship
7. The Parent as Attachment Figure
8. AFFT for Foster-Adaptive Families: Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy
Appendix A: A Demonstration Session of AFFT
Appendix B: Certification Program for Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and AFFTt
The theoretical grounding is sufficient, and the material on certification is an excellent addition. This workbook is highly recommended for busy therapists who wish to focus on AFFT, as well as those who simply wish to deepen their understanding of this modality or who wish to integrate selected aspects into their own practice.
The most useful related book is Hughe's own Attachment-Focused Family Therapy, for which the Workbook is the companion. Couples' therapists dealing with especially difficult non-abuse situations may find The Couple's Survival Workbook: What You Can Do To Reconnect With Your Partner and Make Your Marriage Work by Olsen and Stephens to be useful, though it is not attachment-focused.
