A Secure Base: Clinical Applications of Attachment Theory

Taylor & Francis, 2005 - 204 páginas
Dr John Bowlby, a truly international and outstanding writer, presents the fruits of current research in attachment theory and provides an up to date outline of its main features in this new collection of lectures. In this collection of lectures Dr Bowlby describes recent findings, and gives an outline of the main features of attachment theory, now widely recognised as a most productive conceptual framework within which to organise the evidence. In the final lecture he shows how this knowledge, when applied to analytically oriented psychotherapy, helps both to clarify the aims of therapy and to guide the therapist in his or her own work. This collection will be welcomed by students as a lucid introduction to the field, by professionals who are still unfamiliar with recent developments, as well as by those eager to extend their existing knowledge.
