Attachment theory and research have greatly enhanced our understanding of the role of parent-child relationships in the development of psychopathology. Yet until now, little has been written on how an attachment perspective can be used to actively inform psychotherapeutic practice. In this invaluable work, Karl Heinz Brisch presents an attachment-oriented framework for assessing and treating patients of all ages. Illuminated are the ways that early experiences of separation and loss can lead to a range of psychological, behavioral, and psychosomatic problems, and how these can be addressed in the context of a healing therapeutic relationship. Bridging a longstanding divide between the seminal work of John Bowlby and the concepts and methods of psychodynamic therapy, the book is richly illustrated with evocative clinical material.

Review:

This book should be required reading for clinicians and graduate students involved in working with or learning about children and families beset by attachment disorders. While numerous other works review attachment disorders, this outstanding book goes a step further, navigating an easily accessible path into the multifaceted domain of psychodynamic treatment. Evocative case studies are used to illustrate attachment-oriented therapy and how it may be successfully applied across the lifespan. - Howard Steele, Attachment Research Unit, University College London, UK
