Product description


I highly recommend this book. Every psychotherapist or counselor should have it. — Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter

[T]his text succeeds in providing its readers with an easy-to-follow primer on attachment-focused therapy. — Journal of Phenomenological Psychology

[The book does] a fine job of consolidating current knowledge in the field and paving the way for future developments. The chosen examples are presented in a dialogue format that effectively demonstrates ways in which the clinician can strengthen the child-caregiver relationship. — PsychCentral

Product Description

An all-in-one professional practice guide.

Here in a single accessible guide, is a comprehensive go-to resource on the foundational principles and treatment guidelines for doing attachment therapy. Based on the work of the Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children (ATTACh), a leading organization on attachment in child development, it provides all the nuts and bolts a clinician needs to be familiar with to provide effective, informed, attachment-focused treatment to children and families.

• A synopsis of attachment theory and styles

• Core principles of attachment-focused therapy (synchrony, attunement, reciprocity, repair, regulation, and more)

• Core concepts of trauma and trauma-focused therapy (resistance, therapeutic, and building a coherent narrative)

• Intake and assessment methods

• Differential diagnosis

• Best practice standards and interventions

• PTSD and other comorbidities

• Treatment planning and behavior management

• Vicarious trauma

Complex trauma and developmental trauma disorder are also covered in depth, as well as up-to-date information on how brain science has changed our understanding of relationships and developmental functioning, and, in turn, phases of treatment and intervention options.
