Attachment in Psychotherapy


Product Description

Published USA, 2007
David Wallin's popular book translates attachment research and theory for clinicians. He advances a model of treatment as transformation through relationship, integrating attachment theory with neuroscience, trauma studies, relational psychotherapy and the psychology of mindfulness. 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. This book is possibly the best integration of key advances in attachment theory and research and their applications to psychotherapy.
