"An exceptionally rich account of how attachment theory may be used to guide treatment methods."--Michael Rutter, MD, Social, Genetic, and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London, United Kingdom
"This second edition is an essential resource for clinicians, scholars, students, and all others seeking a fuller understanding of attachment disorders across the lifespan and how to treat them. Brisch wisely agrees with other leading authorities that holding therapy is wrongheaded and irreconcilable with attachment theory. But how then should the serious emotional and behavioral troubles that typify the notion of attachment disorders be treated? For what is arguably the best and most comprehensive, research-based, and sensitive answer to date, read Brisch!"--Howard Steele, PhD, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Psychology, New School for Social Research"
