The origins and measurement of individual differences in adult attachment are examined, as is the question...

    by Susan M. Johnson

    Drawing on cutting-edge research on adult attachment--and providing an innovative roadmap for clinical practice--Susan M. Johnson argues that psychotherapy is most effective when it focuses on the healing power of emotional connection. The primary developer of emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples, Johnson now extends her attachment-based approach to individuals and families.

  • Attachment-Based Psychotherapy: Helping Patients Develop Adaptive Capacities

    Attachment-Based Psychotherapy: Helping Patients Develop Adaptive Capacities

    by Peter C Costello

    Our early attachment experiences with our primary caregiver influence the adult that we become. These experiences forge our patterns of communication, emotional experience, intimate relationships, and way of living in the world. If our early attachments are secure, we learn to access and communicate adaptive feelings, thoughts, and behaviours. In contrast, if our early attachment experiences are insecure, we may struggle with dysregulated, maladaptive emotions and have difficulties in our intimate relationships — leading to anxiety, depression, and excessive or misdirected anger. This book presents an attachment-based approach to therapy that...

  • Attachment-Focused Family Therapy

    Attachment-Focused Family Therapy

    by Dan Hughes

    Over fifty years ago, John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth's research on the developmental psychology of children formed the basic tenets of attachment theory. And for years, following these tenets, the theory's focus has been on how children develop vis-à-vis the attachments-whether secure or insecure-they form with their caregivers. In the therapy room, this has meant working with individuals one-on-one, with the therapist assuming the role of the attachment figure in order to provide a secure base for treating clients' problems that arose from troubled interpersonal relationships in childhood. Here, Daniel A. Hughes,...
