"This erudite but accessible guide to “attachment in clinical practice” is a book that I―and no doubt other attachment-oriented therapists―have long been waiting for. It is a rich repository of diverse experience and knowledge gleaned by “an international roster of expert clinician-researchers” (p. xix)...There is a wealth and breadth of experience contained in this book, which is a tribute to the vision of its editors, Adam Danquah and Katherine Berry, in highlighting John Bowlby’s legacy to clinicians." – Alexandra Maeja Raicar, Attachment: New Directions in Psychotherapy and Relational Psychoanalysis Journal
" The editors’ rich personal experiences and perspectives have guided them in assembling this superb and timely book. The chapters are authored by an international roster of expert clinician-researchers…readers will find a synthesis of the latest research in adult attachment, thoughtfully considered from the perspective of direct application to clinical work." –Brent Mallinckrodt, from the foreword.
"This edited book brings together diverse leading voices from the fields of clinical psychology, psychiatry and psychotherapy on the fertile ground of attachment theory and research. Universal and culture-specific themes are elaborated that will help promote culturally competent practice in the mental health field, adding to the growing literature confirming the vital relevance of attachment theory and research to all range of clinical and forensic problems, their understanding and treatment." – Howard Steele, PhD, Professor of Psychology, New School for Social Research; Editor of Attachment & Human Development and President of Society for Emotion and Attachment Studies (SEAS)
