Overview

Bringing attachment theory essentials to everyday life.
A revolution is under way in how we understand the nature of relationships, how we develop in those relationships, and how our brains function synergistically in connection with others. This field is known as attachment theory, and until now most of the cutting-edge insights have been written in “researcher-speak” and reserved for neurologists, psychologists, and others in the healing professions.
Here veteran therapist and specialist in attachment disorders Daniel A. Hughes demystifies the research for lay people. By summarizing in short, easy-to-read “keys” the theory and brain science that underpin our ability to form relationships, he skillfully reveals how we can become better friends, spouses, siblings, and children. For anyone interested in how to develop meaningful new relationships or how to deepen and enrich their current ones, this book makes sense of it all.

Editorial Reviews

Terry Real
“Daniel Hughes has done more here than translate the science of attachment theory to the general reader. He offers readable, thoughtful, practical tools capable of transforming relationships. 8 Steps to Building Your Best Relationships has the power to change your life.”
Psychologist (UK)
“I’m always interested in anything new that Dan Hughes produced. In this case, I think he has produces another fine book . . . I would have no hesitation in recommending it as a self-help book useful not just for those who are having problems in their primary relationships but who would like a better understanding of themselves or an up-to-date account of the usefulness of attachment theory written in a clear and authoritative manner.”
