Product Description

Review

"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." "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." "[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!" "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

Superb Introduction to AFFT Sept. 19 2012
By E. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Most therapy workbooks are designed for direct use in a therapy settings, with exercises to be completed by the client(s) under the direction of the therapist. This workbook, however, is written for therapists themselves. The aim here is to provide a practical grounding in the practice of family attachment therapy, without neglecting theory and theoretical guidelines.

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:

1. Attachment
2. Intersubjectivity
3. Affective-Reflective Dialogue
4. PACE
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.

The Best Attachment Theory Plan Sept. 20 2011
By Paul Feiger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Purchased book because I am working with families with foster, adopted, and kinship children. My supervisior made me aware of the workbook, and I am glad he did. The whole plan, start to finish, is laid out in easy to understand guidelines and theory. Just tweak it to the individual client and you can almost see the success. Great for all looking for family therapy guidelines.

This book is a must for therapists engaged in family work. For those individuals fortunate enough to have had training with Dan Hughes this brings it back to the basics. A great support in working with individuals and families.

Attachment Focus Family Therapy Oct. 26 2013
By sharonkelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very disappointed as for book Attachement Focused Family Therapy teaches therapist about this kind of therapeutic intervention ONLY. The book lacks written assignments for families to practice, and just simply practical information. Very clinical.
