We’re thrilled to announce the release of a new resource for clinicians, Attachment Theory in Action: Building Connections Between Children and Parents.
From the Attachment Theory in Action Press Relase:
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, theraplay, TBRI®, and EMDR, Attachment Theory in Action offers mental health professionals insights into helping even the most challenging patients.
Edited by Karen Doyle Buckwalter, Director of Program Strategy a Chaddock and Debbie Reed, Chaddock’s President/CEO, this volume includes contributions from a variety of Child Development professionals, including our Assistant Director, Dr. Casey Call. Dr. Call collaborated with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. Amanda Hiles Howard to write a chapter entitled Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®).
Dr. Call considers Attachment Theory in Action to be a powerful resource for both professionals and college students:
“I’m excited about this book because it offers so many practical insights from many attachment-based interventions. I think child development professionals will find the information in Attachment Theory in Action fascinating and helpful as they work to bring healing to children and youth from hard places. I’m looking forward to introducing college students in our Child Development Program to this volume when I use it as a textbook in the classes I teach at TCU.”
Attachment Theory in Action is available for purchase on Amazon.
