Clinical Applications of the Adult Attachment Interview Hardback

Edited by Howard Steele, Miriam Steele


The Adult Attachment Interview (AAI) is both a mainstay of attachment research and a powerful clinical tool.

This unique book provides a thorough introduction to the AAI and its use as an adjunct to a range of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, parent-infant psychotherapy, home visiting programs, and supportive work in the context of foster care and adoption.

Leading authorities provide detailed descriptions of clinical procedures and techniques, illustrated with vivid case material.

Grounded in research, the volume highlights how using the AAI can enhance assessment and diagnosis, strengthen the therapeutic alliance, and facilitate goal setting, treatment planning, and progress monitoring.
