Attachment-Focused Family Therapy Workbook


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
Daniel Hughes's bestselling book, Attachment-Focused Family Therapy, brought attachment theory into the realm of family therapy. In this companion workbook, he moves beyond the fundamental principles to offer readers a fully body of interventions - invaluable training exercises, core skills and treatment techniques to apply the attachment-focused family therapy model effectively in clinical practice. The author outlines the key ways in which therapists can facilitate spontaneous, moment-to-moment connections between parent and child, including incorporating affective-reflective dialogue; achieving PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy); teaching parents to develop an attachment perspective; and designing a gradual but effective treatment program. Loads of case examples as well as sample dialogues, worksheets and question-and-answer scenarios, demonstrate the clinical strategies and provide therapists with various approaches to respond to challenges that might arise in therapy. An accompanying DVD demonstrates Daniel Hughes putting these strategies to work in a therapy session.

Daniel Hughes maintains a practice at the Quittie Glen Centre for Mental Health in Pennsylvania, USA.
