Attachment Theory is the first coherent, clinically relevant map of the territory of adult love. The white hot emotions and dramas that emerge in couples therapy can be understood when seen in an attachment frame. Learn how to lead the couple, step by step, toward the transforming enactments that create a secure bond between the partners. Discover how to integrate attachment theory into your work with couples to help them forgive old hurts and use their relationship as a source of strength and healing.
