A Short Introduction to Attachment and Attachment Disorder, Paperback

A Short Introduction to Attachment and Attachment Disorder Paperback

Part of the JKP Short Introductions series



This book presents a short and accessible introduction to what 'attachment' means and how to recognise attachment disorders in children.

The author 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 antisocial and defensive tendencies.

A Short Introduction to Attachment and Attachment Disorder includes case vignettes 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.
