David Wallin talks about Attachment in Psychotherapy.
In his eloquent new book, "Attachment in Psychotherapy," David Wallin translates the findings of attachment theory 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- Books Inc.
