Overview

Today, the important early bond between mother and baby is under stress. 3-5% of all children show signs of severe attachment problems, often leading to social problems and violent/ criminal behavior/ abuse later in life. Based on his more than 20 years of theory and personal practice in the field of attachment disorder, Dr. Rygaard's handbook of therapy provides the reader with a theoretical understanding as well as a wealth of suggestions for daily practice. Step by step, the reader is guided through a cross-scientific theoretical overview, the classic symptoms of disturbed attachment, and treatment at different stages of development, from preventive measures to ensure a healthy attachment early in life to treatment at different stages of personality development to adulthood. For each step, many examples from daily practice as well as checklists at different stages are given. Special sections on adoption issues, how to teach the AD schoolchild, sexual abuse and AD give tools and inspiration for the reader's design. The final chapters concern the personal development of the therapist as well as suggestions for designing the therapeutic milieu and teamwork. The book is equally useful to the professional practitioner as well as the adoptive parent or foster family.
