Book: Doing Psychotherapy

Book Title:

Doing Psychotherapy: A Trauma and Attachment-Informed Approach.

Author(s): Robin Shapiro.

Year: 2020.

Edition: First (1ed).

Publisher: W.W. Norton & Company.

Type(s): Paperback, Audiobook, and Kindle.

Synopsis:

Most books about doing psychotherapy are tied to particular psychotherapeutic practices. Here, seasoned clinical author Robin Shapiro teaches readers the ins and outs of a trauma-and attachment-informed approach that is not tied to any one model or method.

This book teaches assessment, treatment plans, enhancing the therapeutic relationship and ethics and boundary issues, all within a general framework of attachment theory and trauma. Practical chapters talk about working with attachment problems, grief, depression, cultural differences, affect tolerance, anxiety, addiction, trauma, skill- building, suicidal ideation, psychosis, and the beginning and end of therapy. Filled with examples, suggestions for dialogue and questions for a variety of therapeutic situation, Shapiro’s conversational tone makes the book very relatable.

Early-career therapists will refer to it for years to come and veteran practitioners looking for a refresher (or introduction) to the latest in trauma and attachment work will find it especially useful.

Book: On Attachment – The View From Developmental Psychology

Book Title:

On Attachment – The View From Developmental Psychology.

Author(s): Ian Rory Owen.

Year: 2017.

Edition: First (1st).

Publisher: Routledge.

Type(s): Hardcover, Paperback, and Kindle.

Synopsis:

Attachment theory occupies an integrative position between psychodynamic therapy and various perspectives within empirical psychology.

Since therapy began, its way of thinking has been to interpret mental processes in relation to meaningful psychological objects between children and parents, partners, friends, and within individual therapy.

This volume summarises the research literature relating to attachment theory in developmental psychology in order to clarify conclusions that support practice.

  • Part 1 considers the received wisdom about attachment, and summarises the literature and what it means for understanding relationships and defences as part of development.
  • Part 2 considers attachment in relation to emotional regulations.
  • Part 3 applies the clarified understanding of attachment processes to inform assessment and therapy, and more broadly, mental health work in general.

The ideas of Sigmund Freud and John Bowlby are used to reinvigorate psychodynamic practice.
