A Short Introduction to Attachment & Attachment Disorder
A short and accessible introduction to attachment & how to recognise attachment disorders in children.
This user-friendly book explains how complex problems in childhood may stem from the parent-child relationship during a child's early formative years, and later from the child's engagement with the broader social world. It explores the mindset of difficult and traumatised children and the motivations behind their apparently anti-social and defensive tendencies.
Includes case studies to illustrate examples, and offers a comprehensive set of tried-and-tested practical strategies for parents, carers and practitioners in supportive roles caring for children.
Contents include: What is the Role of Attachment?; What is Attachment Disorder?; How do I Know if a Child has an Attachment Disorder?; What Constitutes Effective Treatment?; Glossary of Terms
