Book Description :

"This practical book introduces and explains an easily accessible assessment tool for adult attachment style, the Attachment Style Interview (ASI). Based on extensive research study, it discusses appropriate interventions and case assessments that can be made to help families in need. Simpler than the Adult Attachment Interview, which requires expert administration, the ASI is an invaluable and evidence-based resource and is particularly useful for multi-agency practitioners working with children and families, including those in adoption and fostering, child safeguarding and therapeutic services. Presenting clear and concise descriptions of the measure and summaries of the attachment models developed, it provides discussions of its relevance for different practice contexts. This text uses a range of worked case studies to illustrate its principles and applications. It details attachment issues in different relationship domains to cover areas of risk and resilience relevant for practice such as: adult depression and anxiety and stress models, partner difficulties including domestic violence, childhood neglect and abuse as a source of attachment problems, parenting and intergenerational transmission of risk, resilience factors, interventions, service application and use in family therapy. Understanding Adult Attachment in Family Relationships provides an important reference for all practitioners working with children, adolescents and families, especially those undertaking further study"--Provided by publisher.

Book Description :

Attachment theory has triggered an explosion of research into family relationships, and has provided a conceptual basis for the work of practitioners. Adult Attachment and Couple Psychotherapy brings research and practice perspectives to bear on the adult couple relationship, and provides a framework for assessing and working with secure and insecure partnerships. Divided into three parts, the book: * looks at what is meant by secure and insecure attachment in the couple * describes how theory and research have been applied to practice, and how practice has added to the understanding of the complex problems that couples bring to therapy * examines the significance of training and the organisation of work for effective practice with couples. Using vivid illustrations from clinical and community work, Adult Attachment and Couple Psychotherapy offers stimulating reading for all those involved in this field who wish to re-assess their models of practice.

Book Description :

Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now. Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes. In Attached, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways: *ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back. *AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness. *SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving. Attached guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, Attached offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.

Book Description :

This book presents cutting-edge research on adult attachment together with a complete overview of the Adult Attachment Projective Picture System (AAP), the authors' validated developmental assessment. In addition to research applications, the AAP can be of great use for clinicians seeking to understand the attachment strengths and challenges that clients bring to therapy. The book describes how the AAP identifies attachment classification groups and yields important information about dimensions--including defensive processes--not evaluated by other available measures. Part I examines the theoretical underpinnings of the AAP and compares it to other adult attachment assessments. The authors explain how autobiographical narrative, as elicited and analyzed by the AAP, can offer strong insights into essential features of attachment. Part II reviews the nuts and bolts of the AAP: its development and validation, how it is administered, and how the coding and classification system works. Chapters in Part III contain detailed case illustrations that show what the AAP looks like "in action" and what it reveals about individuals' early experiences, sense of self, and capacity to engage in close, protective relationships. Cases, which include childhood history and verbatim AAP transcripts, represent the four major adult attachment classification groups: secure, dismissing, preoccupied, and unresolved. The concluding chapter discusses promising uses of the AAP in neurobiological research. A unique and timely contribution to the field, this authoritative book belongs on the desks of all developmental and clinical researchers interested in attachment, as well as clinical psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and other clinicians who want to integrate attachment into their practices.

Adult Attachment Patterns in a Treatment Context

Book Description :

Attachment theory posits that the need for attachment is a life-long phenomenon that becomes especially relevant in times of crisis or trauma. When adults experience illness, accidents, assaults, psychological difficulties or losses, their attachment-behavioural systems are activated, motivating them to seek help and support from family and friends and/or from helping professionals. However, the resulting request for help is affected and shaped by earlier experiences regarding the support and trustworthiness of attachment figures. Can others be trusted? Is it safe to show vulnerability? How should one behave to increase the likelihood of receiving the help needed? Adult Attachment Patterns in a Treatment Context provides an integrated introduction to the subject of adult attachment. Research into adult attachment patterns offers professional helpers a theoretically sound insight into the dynamics underlying a range of client behaviours, including some of the more puzzling and frustrating behaviours such as denying obvious pain or continually pushing the professional for more personal involvement. Sarah Daniel shows how applying knowledge of attachment patterns to treatment settings will improve the way in which professionals engage with clients and the organization of treatments. This book will be relevant to a range of helping professionals such as psychotherapists, psychologists and social workers, both in practice and in training.

Book Description :

A great deal is known about how infants form attachments, and how these processes carry over into adolescence. But after that, the trail grows cold: the study of adult attachment emphasizes individual variations, paying little attention to the normative mechanisms of adult bonding. A much-needed corrective, Bases of Adult Attachment examines this under-investigated topic with an eye toward creating a robust theoretical model. The first volume of its kind, its multilevel approach integrates current findings from neuroscience and psychology to analyze the processes by which adult relationships develop, mature, function and dissolve. Here in relevant detail are factors contributing to initial attraction, possible scenarios in the evolution from friendship to attachment and the changes that occur on both sides of a relationship as partners mutually influence each other's behavior, emotions, cognition and even physiology. And expert contributors address long-neglected questions in the field with stimulating topics such as: The distress-relief dynamic in attachment bonding. An expectancy-value approach to attachment. The biobehavioral legacy of early attachment relationships for adult emotional and interpersonal functioning. How early experiences shape attraction, partner preferences, and attachment dynamics. How mental representations change as attachments form. Insights into the formation of attachment bonds from a social network perspective. Bases of Adult Attachment will interest scholars approaching adult attachment at multiple levels of analysis (neural, physiological, affective, cognitive and behavioral) and from multiple perspectives. This wide audience includes developmental, social and cognitive psychologists as well as neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, clinicians, sociologists, family researchers and professionals in public health and medicine.

Book Description :

The applicability of attachment theory and research to social work and social policy relating to infants and children is well-established. Yet, its usefulness for enhancing the understanding of adults and their needs, both individually and as a group, has been less featured in the attachment literature. Adult Attachment in Clinical Social Work Practice is a wide-ranging look at attachment theory and research, its application to adults, and its natural fit with the social work profession. This edited volume covers the applicability of adult attachment theory to the clinical social work profession’s various domains that include human behavior, practice, policy, research, and social work education. It addresses the broad spectrum of clinical social work, including practice in a variety of public and private settings and with a number of diverse populations, including racial-ethnic groups, gays and lesbians, trauma survivors, and child welfare parents. The book highlights the underemphasized contribution of the social work profession to the development of attachment theory and research.

Book Description :

Most violence against women occurs in the context of intimate relationships (Henton, Cate, Koval, Lloyd, & Christopher, 1983). Adult attachment style has been found useful in understanding intimate relationships (Hazan & Shaver, 1987; Collins, 1996). The present study examines whether men who are violent against women have different adult attachment styles then men who are not violent against women. The participants were 176 men with a mean age of 33 who were participants in a longitudinal study of sexual aggression (Malamuth, Linz, Heavey, Barnes & Acker, 1995). The prevalence of violence in the sample was high: 74% admitted to at least one aggressive act; 55% of the violent men reported using at least 4 of the 14 sexually and physically aggressive behaviors studied. Adult attachment style was unrelated to physical violence, sexual violence, and the combination, both physical and sexual violence against women. Four possible explanations were discussed: the high base rate of violence in the sample, problems in the measurement of adult attachment style, the failure of the design of the study to capture the complexity of the relationship between adult attachment style and violence against women, and the possibility that the original hypothesis was wrong. Several directions for additional research were described.

Co-authored by neuroscientist and psychiatrist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S.F. Heller, Attached is a comprehensive and helpful relationship workbook that makes use of the attachment theory—a highly detailed and advanced science for explaining different relationship dynamics. The attachment theory, which was introduced by British psychoanalyst and psychologist John Bowlby, presents the influence of our early relationship with our parents and how it significantly affects how we build intimate relationships later on in life. The attachment theory likewise explains that our desire to be a part of an intimate relationship is rooted in our genetics. In this book, the authors concentrate on the three distinct types of attachment styles that depict how people carry themselves in a relationship, and these are: Anxious, Avoidant and Secure.
