In this volume, distinguished therapists and clinicians offer a broad range of effective attachment-based interventions for children with a history of attachment difficulties and complex trauma. Stepping through attachment theory and the latest research in neuroscience, the contributors illustrate how the treatment of developmental trauma often requires implementing more than one clinical model. Including chapters on the practical application of dyadic developmental psychotherapy, mindfulness, theraplay, and EMDR, Attachment Theory in Action offers mental health professionals insights into helping even the most challenging patients.
