Summary This interactive practice guide offers a new approach to attachment-based practice with adults. By integrating audio, visual and written information around five characters and their stories, the guide brings attachment theory to life in a conceptually clear but dynamic, engaging and hands-on way. This guide offers: an introduction to contemporary attachment theory and its links with neurobiology; a practical, user-friendly interactive workbook for frontline practitioners to help them understand adult attachment theory and its relevance to their work; a specific but flexible interviewing strategy (the LEARN Model) which helps practitioners to work with confidence in an attachment-informed way; frameworks, tools and other resources to assist practitioners who want to use a relationship-based, attachment-informed approach; a work-based resource that can be used by individuals, teams, co-workers, supervisors or teachers / trainers to reflect on and improve the preparation, use and support of attachment thinking in practice; an approach that speaks to diverse professions and modalities, and which can be used in a multidisciplinary environment by both adult and children's services practitioners; ways to increase the confidence of practitioners to act as change agents with their clients. With five detailed case studies and attachment-based interviews (in written and audio format), step-by-step commentary, illustrations and practical exercises to apply the learning throughout
