Attachment theory is all the rage in therapy these days. But what does a therapist do with all the theory? This book presents successful attachment-oriented interventions for clinicians to use with parents, children and a variety of presenting issues from trauma to depression to anger.
This book is an act of generosity, a compendium of Deborah Gray's attachment-based therapy that includes theoretical underpinnings, structure, goals and objectives, methods and opportunities for improvisation. It contains a wealth of practical examples, concrete advice, and tips. Gray's emphasis is on direct experiential work that employs touch, physical movement, play and role-play, scripted dialogue, food sharing, and development of narratives to increase parental sensitivity and emotional availability to children. Gray's advice is invaluable for therapists who are helping children with troubled histories trust caregivers enough to co-regulate strong emotions and learn ways to calming down when upset rather than melting down.--Dee Wilson, author of Sounding Board commentaries on child welfare With her 30 years of experience, Deborah Gray draws us into a deeper understanding and appreciation of attachment theory. Deborah writes as she speaks, offering real-world, practical insights that not only enlivens therapists' comprehension of this field but invite them to apply these ideas in way that are inclusive and relevant. Applying these principles will enhance your practice.--Mary M. McGowan, Executive Director of the Association for Training on Trauma and Attachment in Children (ATTACh) Overall this book is full of helpful approaches and does deliver in a seamless and simple way, making it valuable to those seeking to understand this area of endeavor.
