This book describes the development of the child-centered attachment therapy (CcAT) model of working with children with attachment difficulties. They describe, in an accessible manner, the complexities involved in supporting parents in their struggles to respond positively to the needs of children who have been traumatized by their early experiences.

The author has many years of working with families of children who act out their hurt through difficult behaviors, and the book is full of insights to help both parents and professionals to understand and deal more effectively with such behaviors. The book admirably demonstrates the authors’ belief in a therapeutic approach that focuses on
attachment and protection as prerequisites for promoting healthy relationships.

Table of Contents:

The Long Term Impact of Attachment Difficulties on Families; Background to the Development of CcAT; From Theory to Practice: CcAT as a ‘working model’; Phase 2 of the CcAT Programme – 1996; Phase 3 of the CcAT Programme - 1997 to 2007; Re-evaluating CcAT; CcAT therapists’ learning; users’ perspectives; A future for CcAT: spreading the word amongst professionals; Overall learning from CcAT: who can benefit.
