Mar 16, AJW rated it it attacument amazing Shelves: In the warm glow of finishing this book and being enormously helped by it, I’m compelled to gush and say that this is the best counselling book I’ve read so far.

Attachment in Psychotherapy
You feel you get to know the author, David Wallin. And I liked him. What he writes about is based on solid psychological research, but he doesn’t bore you with incomprehensible academic jargon.
I would recommend it as a serious and helpful introduction to Attachment Theory. But what really makes this book come alive is the case histories where he shows how he uses these psychological theories to change and improve the lives of psycgotherapy gripped by difficult emotional problems.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this book if you are interested in the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and patient. Oct 01, Stuart rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Feb 27, Lynne rated it it was amazing.
The book you need if you are trying to use attachment theory to shape how you think of being a therapist. Not the fastest, simplest or psychotherpy fun read, but important, nonetheless. Aug 17, Rebecca added it. This is the most important book I’ve read in graduate school, and it was not a required text. I can’t recommend it enough for anyone interested in Attachment Theory, both the science around it and it’s clinical applications.
It sort of rocked my world! Oct 28, Kayla rated it it was amazing. This is one of the best psychotherapy texts I have read.
It was validating as a clinician to hear about his experiences with rupture and repair. The book contains practical and applicable advice for clinicians to take care both of their internal worlds as well as the therapeutic relationship.
It encourages to dig a bit deeper and to face the fear that a client may be displeased with therapy or angry as the therapist, and helps re-frame this as an opportunity for deepening both the therapeutic wo This is one of the best psychotherapy texts I have read.
It encourages to dig a bit deeper and to face the fear that a client may be displeased with therapy or angry as the therapist, and helps re-frame this as an opportunity for deepening both the therapeutic work and the psycchotherapy itself.
Mar 13, Cameron rated it it was amazing. This book intimidated me in the beginning, small print, a ton of words per page, etc. I started reading chapters that I thought would most interest me, another error on my part. When I had time I began from the beginning and Wallin took me on an unforgettable journey.
The author brings the reader up to speed on the history of attachment theory which prepares one for where he will take you. With an engaging writing style he applies attachment theory to the psychotherapy process. He doesn’t try to This book intimidated me in the beginning, small print, a ton of words per page, etc.
He doesn’t try to sell the reader on any one type of therapeutic approach he masterfully helps you understand that attachment issues may be alive and well in many of the clients we work with. As I continued on this journey my positive impression of the book only increased.
As I thumb back through the pages there are underlines and markings on nearly every page. From my perspective this is a must read text for those who have found or are searching for the deeper levels of understanding in the therapeutic process both for the client and therapist. Many popular therapeutic approaches attempt to simplify the process and many of us are left wanting.
Wallin explores areas of therapy that can truly be healing for all involved. An appropriate level of theory and research is combined with important application making for a book satisfying to read. Jan 29, Ash rated it it was amazing Shelves: An exceptional synopsis of attachment theory and general approach to applying it in therapy.
A must read for psychologists. Dec 21, Jreader rated it really liked it. I have been a DBT and trauma therapist for 11 years. I found Attachment in Psychotherapy to be one of the best books I have read on attachment. It tells you clinically what to do with clients and how to do it–step by step. I have read many books on attachment and went an attachment disorder conference in LA in May It didn’t cover anything like this. I made notes all over the book, wrote client names and tips in a separate notebook, literally was using the book within the first week I sta I have been a DBT and trauma therapist for 11 years.
I made notes all over the book, wrote client names and tips in a separate notebook, literally was using the book within the first week I started reading it. I took so long to read it because I treated it like a college course. I even looked up Wallin conferences to consider in So, why only 4 stars?
Because I couldn’t make it 4. The last 15 or so pages–they just seemed too enmeshed for me. As a therapist, I felt there was just a hint of too much David and it overshadowed the client.
I realize he was telling us his side as a therapist and being very vulnerable with us in admitting so much of his internal dialogue. He is in private practice. I just don’t see that level of disclosure being feasible or appropriate within a state agency or federal job. This’ top notch work.
Attachment in Psychotherapy by David J. Wallin
You can get through it pretty well. I already admitted I’ve been trained in DBT–you have to simultaneously translate that in your head as you study. The man cares about his clients and knows his stuff. An excellent book and why aren’t they teaching us this in graduate school?
