Attachment-Focused Parenting: Effective Strategies to Care for Children Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Attachment security and affect regulation have long been buzzwords in therapy circles, but many of these ideas--so integral to successful therapeutic work with kids and adolescents-- have yet to be effectively translated to parenting practice itself. Moreover, as neuroscience reveals how the human brain is designed to work in good relationships, and how such relationships are central to healthy human development, the practical implications for the parent-child attachment relationship become even more apparent. Here, a leading attachment specialist with over 30 years of clinical experience brings the rich and comprehensive field of attachment theory and research from inside the therapy room to the outside, equipping therapists and caregivers with practical parenting skills and techniques rooted in proven therapeutic principles. A guide for all parents and a resource for all mental health clinicians and parent-educators who are searching for ways to effectively love, discipline, and communicate with children, this book presents the techniques and practices that are fundamental to optimal child development and family functioning--how to set limits, provide guidance, and manage the responsibilities and difficulties of daily life, while at the same time communicating safety, fun, joy, and love. Filled with valuable clinical vignettes and sample dialogues, Hughes shows how attachment-focused research can guide all those who care for children in their efforts to better raise them.

Book News Annotation:

In this guide for parents, mental health clinicians, and parent-educators, Hughes, a psychotherapist, consultant, and trainer specializing in attachment therapy and childhood trauma, applies parent-child attachment theory and research to specific parenting strategies and techniques helpful in raising children. He explains the importance of a sense of safety, understanding intersubjectivity, the parent's attachment patterns, communication, children's reflective skills, emotional development, and having an attitude that focuses on playfulness, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy, as well as how to repair relationships and deal with attachment resistance.
