This book sets out a framework for practice - attachment narrative therapy - that provides a new approach to working with families, couples and individuals. This is not offered as a prescriptive model but as an aid and guide to practice that draws aspects of narrative and attachment therapy into systemic work. The synthesis of these ideas offers clinicians a new integrative way to approach their practice - one in which the three approaches are used to create a greater whole than their constituent parts.
