Enhance your purchase
Frequently bought together
Attachment Disturbances in Adults is a comprehensive resource for understanding attachment, its development, its dysfunctions, its assessments, and its treatments. It covers relevant research in all these areas, grounding it in evidence-based actualities. But it is the book's comprehensiveness, its thorough inclusiveness--not only with regard to all the important aspects of attachment but to the full field of treatment approaches available for each aspect, drawn together into a coherent and compelling synthesizing framework--that make it clearly the exemplary and definitive book to date on this extraordinary topic. A brilliant must-have for clinicians, therapists, and interested laypeople alike.--Ken Wilber, Integral Psychology (11/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
A masterpiece of integration, creativity, and clinical wisdom, Attachment Disturbances in Adults stands out as a vibrantly innovative treasure that will endure, one of those rare trail-blazers. Mental health professionals across disciplines will delight in the rich depth and breadth of this essential book, which seamlessly interweaves research, theory and treatment. Brown, Elliott and colleagues have written a tour de force that is surely destined to become an instant classic.--Kathy Steele, MN, CS, Clinical Director, Metropolitan Counseling Services, and author of Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation (11/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
I thoroughly recommend reading this book. . . . [F]ull of practical detail about the three-pillars method, and sample 'scripts' and sessions, which I found extremely valuable. I intend, when appropriate, to put the elements that I have described into practice.-- "Human Givens Journal" (11/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
The book provides a very thorough guide of how attachment disturbances can be related to psychopathology such as emotional distress, somatic disorders, trauma, addictions, and personality disorders. . . . [A]n incredibly thorough resource for someone who needs an advanced understanding of attachment issues for a course or for the mental health professional who wishes to integrate this information into their work.-- "PsychCentral" (11/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
This is an extraordinary achievement. The must-have book on attachment, it includes everything you need to know about attachment, and then some--history, research, typology AND treatment! Richly comprehensive, precise, and wise, it is honed by real clinical experience, with step-by-step treatment protocols tailored to each attachment classification. This book should be required reading for all graduate students in clinical programs, be they clinical psychology, psychiatry, counseling, or social work. It should be a sine qua non for all attachment researchers. It is a book that any clinician who works with trauma and attachment disturbances--which means all clinicians, for attachment disturbances underlie most major syndromes--should have and master.--Diana Fosha, PhD, developer of AEDP, author of The Transforming Power of Affect, Director of the AEDP Institute (11/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)
This is an incredibly important volume that makes a stunning contribution to the field. It spectacularly achieves an integration of the lifespan literature on attachment and its sequelae with intervention. Rarely does a scholarly work contribute to the understanding of the processes underlying attachment and its dysfunction while simultaneously providing a clearly delineated prescription for treatment. Practitioners will profit from the detailed clinical vignettes and researchers will gain many ideas warranting empirical investigation.--Dante Cicchetti, PhD, McKnight Presidential Chair, Professor of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota (11/17/2016 12:00:00 AM)

This book is huge, but every sentence is gold.
I needed this book.
I have many books on attachment theory. And books on how it relates to addiction, and even personality disorders.
But this book actually gives instruction on how to repair a disturbed attachment.
After finding Dr. Brown while listening to an amazing interview and podcast, I dove right in. So much makes sense. Why are therapists using EMDR ( some improperly) as the new thing to attempt to heal trauma? Dan addresses reasons why interventions do not work without digging in first to the bone. Attachment trauma, relational trauma, attunement, formation of the various systems in the body-- how can you do therapy without addressing the foundational hurts?
Time to rethink things.
Telling your patients to read the Enneagram or Women Who Runs With Wolves-- not cutting the mustard
