Reviews

"Exceptionally coherent and immensely helpful, this book comprehensively reviews how the Adult Attachment Interview can be used to guide clinical work in a range of high-priority contexts. This remarkable instrument, which has more than proved itself in the developmental laboratory, also turns out to be a marvelous and versatile tool in the hands of the creative clinician. An essential book for all those who work with children." "-" Peter Fonagy, Sub-Department of Clinical Health Psychology, University College London, UK "'Steele and Steele have brought together a really valuable set of data and ideas concerning the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI), one of the more intriguing and powerful clinical and research tools available in psychology. The book stands out as a serious and ambitious attempt to translate the AAI - and attachment theory more broadly - to multiple clinical contexts. Chapters are written by leading clinicians and scientists, and each is focused and thoughtful, showing, for example, how the AAI informs case conceptualization in individual treatment. This volume deserves to be widely read. It is highly accessible for those just beginning to apply attachment theory to research and practice, but there is also enough that is new to please experienced fans of the AAI.'" - Thomas G. O'Connor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Rochester Medical Center, USA
