An all-in-one professional practice guide.

Here in a single accessible guide, is a comprehensive go-to resource on the foundational principles and treatment guidelines for doing attachment therapy. Based on the work of the Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children (ATTACh), a leading organization on attachment in child development, it provides all the nuts and bolts a clinician needs to be familiar with to provide effective, informed, attachment-focused treatment to children and families.

• A synopsis of attachment theory and styles
• Core principles of attachment-focused therapy (synchrony, attunement, reciprocity, repair, regulation, and more)
• Core concepts of trauma and trauma-focused therapy (resistance, therapeutic, and building a coherent narrative)
• Intake and assessment methods
• Differential diagnosis
• Best practice standards and interventions
• PTSD and other comorbidities
• Treatment planning and behavior management
• Vicarious trauma

Complex trauma and developmental trauma disorder are also covered in depth, as well as up-to-date information on how brain science has changed our understanding of relationships and developmental functioning, and, in turn, phases of treatment and intervention options.

By delineating the standards of care for treating attachment and trauma disorders, this book provides clinicians with a comprehensive framework to assess, develop, and evaluate the best approach to helping their clients. An all-in-one professional practice guide you won't want to be without.

Advanced Praise:

"This latest guide by Becker-Weidman and associates follows the tradition of thoroughness, clarity, practicality, and rootedness in fundamental principles manifested in all of his writings. Firmly grounded in original attachment theory, this guide distinguishes itself in the literature of loss and trauma. As they teach us how to sit with children of loss and trauma and their families, Becker-Weidman and his co-authors show us how to sensitively walk the line between exposure and affect regulation while treating children and their families--all in a context of safety and empathy. Seldom do clinical guidebooks so thoughtfully show us not just what to do, but why we're doing it this way."--Michael Trout, Director, The Infant-Parent Institute
