Attachment security and affect regulation have long been buzzwords in therapy circles,but many of these ideas'”so integral to successful therapeutic work with kids and adolescents'”have yet to be effectively translated to parenting practice itself. Moreover, as neurosciencereveals how the human brain is designed to work in good relationships, and howsuch relationships are central to healthy human development, the practical implications forthe parent-child attachment relationship become even more apparent. Here, a leading attachment specialist with over 30 years of clinical experience brings therich and comprehensive field of attachment theory and research from inside the therapyroom to the outside, equipping therapists and caregivers with practical parenting skills andtechniques rooted in proven therapeutic principles. A guide for all parents and a resource for all mental health clinicians and parent-educators who are searching for waysto effectively love, discipline, and communicate with children, this book presents the techniques and practices that arefundamental to optimal child development and family functioning'”how to set limits, provide guidance, and manage theresponsibilities and difficulties of daily life, while at the same time communicating safety, fun, joy, and love. Filled withvaluable clinical vignettes and sample dialogues, Hughes shows how attachment-focused research can guide all those whocare for children in their efforts to better raise them.
