Doing Psychotherapy : A Trauma and Attachment-Informed Approach Paperback / softback
Most books about doing psychotherapy are tied to particular psychotherapeutic practices.
Here, seasoned clinical author Robin Shapiro teaches readers the ins and outs of a trauma-and attachment-informed approach that is not tied to any one model or method. This book teaches assessment, treatment plans, enhancing the therapeutic relationship and ethics and boundary issues, all within a general framework of attachment theory and trauma.
Practical chapters talk about working with attachment problems, grief, depression, cultural differences, affect tolerance, anxiety, addiction, trauma, skill-building, suicidal ideation, psychosis, and the beginning and end of therapy.
Filled with examples, suggestions for dialogue and questions for a variety of therapeutic situation, Shapiro's conversational tone makes the book very relatable.
Early-career therapists will refer to it for years to come and veteran practitioners looking for a refresher (or introduction) to the latest in trauma and attachment work will find it especially useful.
