Summary "What is adult attachment theory? How can its ideas and supporting research inform day-to-day clinical work? How does it complement existing therapeutic approaches? Written with the practicing psychotherapist in mind, this book describes how an attachment framework can help practitioners of any orientation better understand and treat their patients. Leading clinicians and researchers draw on their extensive experience to offer practical recommendations for enhancing assessment, case formulation, and clinical decision making."--BOOK JACKET
