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.
