Attachment Theory in Clinical Work with Children : Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice, Paperback Book

Attachment Theory in Clinical Work with Children : Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice Paperback

Edited by David Oppenheim, Douglas F. Goldsmith

Description

Attachment research has tremendous potential for helping clinicians understand what happens when parent-child bonds are disrupted, and what can be done to help.

Yet there remains a large gap between theory and practice in this area.

This book reviews what is known about attachment and translates it into practical guidelines for therapeutic work.

Leading scientist-practitioners present innovative strategies for assessing and intervening in parent-child relationship problems; helping young children recover from maltreatment or trauma; and promoting healthy development in adoptive and foster families.

Detailed case material in every chapter illustrates the applications of research-based concepts and tools in real-world clinical practice.
