“Hughes writes in a way that is both engaging and easy to read. . . . Any therapist with an interest in Attachment Theory should certainly have this in their library, and it will doubtless appeal to students and interns, as well as seasoned practitioners.” — PsychCentral

“[T]his workbook offers all the strategies and tools to effectively handle attachment-focused family therapy issues, and to see that issues are effectively address. Any collection catering to therapist will find it engrossing and filled with pointers to success!” — Midwest Book Review

“This workbook offers a superb integration of attachment theory and neuroscience in a clinical context. It shows through a series of case examples how beautifully attachment-focused therapy works, and makes you feel that it is possible to accomplish great things in difficult cases. Hughes has learned a way to connect with children who are quite disturbed, and who are nonverbal, with such a powerful, deep subcortical force that you can see change happening before your eyes.” — Marion Solomon, PhD, author of Narcissism and Intimacy, coauthor of Love and War In Intimate Relationships, and coeditor of Healing Trauma
