'Jon Allen's latest book of trauma and attachment is his best yet. With a prose style of admirable clarity, he takes the reader on a journey through the history of attachment theory and its applicability to the treatment of those patients who have been traumatized. He writes with authority but never condescends to the reader. Clinicians who are challenged by patients who have been deeply wounded by adverse experience will find a great deal of wisdom in these pages. I heartily recommend it to both beginners and experienced clinicians.'- Glen O. Gabbard, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine
