Written with the practicing psychotherapist in mind, this invaluable book presents cutting-edge knowledge on adult attachment and explores the implications for day-to-day clinical practice. Leading experts illustrate how theory and research in this dynamic area can inform assessment, case formulation, and clinical decision making. The book puts such concepts as the secure base, mentalization, and attachment styles in a new light by focusing on their utility for understanding the therapeutic relationship and processes of change. It offers recommendations for incorporating attachment ideas and tools into specific treatment approaches, with separate chapters on psychoanalytic, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, and emotionally focused therapies.

Reviews

"This comprehensive volume stands as the state-of-the-art guide to the clinical applications of attachment theory. Psychologists and other mental health professionals practicing assessment, evaluation, and the full range of contemporary approaches to psychotherapy will repeatedly turn to this well-organized work. Obegi and Berant have brought together the leading experts in each area of practice and scholarship. At a time when psychotherapists are concerned about establishing meaningful links with empirical research, this impressive book is especially necessary." - Lewis Aron, Director, Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, New York University, USA "One does not often apply the term 'page turner' to a professional volume, but I literally couldn't put this book down. Every chapter includes explicit, practical, and thoughtful strategies for formulating and intervening from an attachment framework. I've already been thinking about how to incorporate these ideas into my teaching and clinical work!" - Hanna Levenson, in private practice, San Francisco, and Professor, Wright Institute, Berkeley, California, USA
