Psychology Today

Dianne Roberts Stoler Ed.D. from Psychology Today article > 

This book, "Attachment Disturbances in Adults: Treatment for Comprehensive Repair," is a major breakthough in treatment. It should be required reading by every mental health clinician and provider as a basis of treatment. If it were, there would be more positive treatment results for a wide variety of mental health issues. in treatment.It should be required reading by every mental health clinician and provider as a basis of treatment.

Onno van der Hart

PhD, Emeritus Professor of Psychopathology of Chronic Traumatization, Utrecht University

Attachment Disturbances in Adults is a book of genius, an unequalled account of how far the attachment field has evolved since Bowlby's groundbreaking studies of attachment bonds. It presents an outstanding, encyclopedic, and integrative overview of theoretical understanding, assessment, and treatment. All this leads to a highly inspirational and effective treatment model, consisting of three "pillars": The Ideal Parent-Figure Protocol, Metacognitive Interventions for Attachment Disturbances, and Fostering Collaborative Capacity and Behavior. These pillars not only include the best of what has been written before in the attachment field, but also integrate the authors' wonderful work from other domains. This extraordinary book will set the bar for many years to come.

Kathy Steele

MN, CS, Clinical Director, Metropolitan Counseling Services. Author of Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation

A masterpiece of integration, creativity, and clinical wisdom, Attachment Disturbances in Adults stands out as a vibrantly innovative treasure that will endure, one of those rare trail-blazers. Mental health professionals across disciplines will delight in the rich depth and breadth of this essential book, which seamlessly interweaves research, theory and treatment. Brown, Elliott and colleagues have written a tour de force that is surely destined to become an instant classic.

Dante Cicchetti

McKnight Presidential Chair, Professor of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota

This is an incredibly important volume that makes a stunning contribution to the field. It spectacularly achieves an integration of the lifespan literature on attachment and its sequelae with intervention. Rarely does a scholarly work contribute to the understanding of the processes underlying attachment and its dysfunction while simultaneously providing a clearly delineated prescription for treatment. Practitioners will profit from the detailed clinical vignettes and researchers will gain many ideas warranting empirical investigation.

Diana Fosha

PhD, author of The Transforming Power of Affect, Director of the AEDP Institute

This is an extraordinary achievement. The must-have book on attachment, it includes everything you need to know about attachment, and then some―history, research, typology AND treatment! Richly comprehensive, precise, and wise, it is honed by real clinical experience, with step-by-step treatment protocols tailored to each attachment classification. This book should be required reading for all graduate students in clinical programs, be they clinical psychology, psychiatry, counseling, or social work. It should be a sine qua non for all attachment researchers. It is a book that any clinician who works with trauma and attachment disturbances―which means all clinicians, for attachment disturbances underlie most major syndromes―should have and master.

Human Givens Journal

A thought-provoking, inspiring journal about psychology, human behaviour and mental health.

I thoroughly recommend reading this book. Full of practical detail about the three-pillars method, and sample ‘scripts’ and sessions, which I found extremely valuable. I intend, when appropriate, to put the elements that I have described into practice.
