Reviews and Endorsements

Most of these brief therapies operate from a principle of reframing the subjective reality of the client and providing a focus on the future as an effective way of engendering change. The therapies are discussed in the light of emerging theories of neuroscience and direct links are made to attachment disorder and the underpinning theory of object relations. A series of case studies bring these theoretical concepts into life and challenges the notion that attachment disorders can only be addressed through a prolonged psychodynamic relationship with the client. The book considers the potential for neurological repair, growth and ongoing development of the individual through the work of Schore, Gerhardt and Hart amongst others. This opportunity for repair is then linked to the latest theories on attachment disorders and the
role of the therapist in creating the optimum environment for change is considered.

With contributions and Foreword by Betty Alice Erickson
