Publisher's Summary

This eloquent book translates attachment theory and research into an innovative framework that grounds adult psychotherapy in the facts of childhood development. Advancing a model of treatment as transformation through relationship, the author integrates attachment theory with neuroscience, trauma studies, relational psychotherapy, and the psychology of mindfulness. Vivid case material illustrates how therapists can tailor interventions to fit the attachment needs of their patients, thus helping them to generate the internalized secure base for which their early relationships provided no foundation. Demonstrating the clinical uses of a focus on nonverbal interaction, the book describes powerful techniques for working with the emotional responses and bodily experiences of patient and therapist alike.

Most Helpful

Useful with good use of case studies

Very useful with understanding the different explicit and implicit processes that take place during therapy, both for the client and therapist.

Helpful distinctions between the different attachment categories and good use of practical examples taken from his experience as a therapist to help strengthen the theory.

Quite dense in parts but then understandable as it's aimed at qualifed therapists. It was helpful to develop an understanding of the dynamics of therapy both for myself as a client and also as a trainee.
