Overview

In recent decades, attachment theory has gained widespread interest and acceptance, although the relevance of attachment theory to clinical practice has never been clear. The Search for the Secure Base shows how attachment theory can be used therapeutically. Jeremy Holmes introduces an exciting new attachment paradigm in psychotherapy with adults, describing the principles and practice of attachment-informed therapy in a way that will be useful to beginners and experienced therapists alike. Illustrated with a wide range of clinical examples, this book will be welcomed by practitioners and trainees in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and in many other disciplines.

    A Good Bridge Between Dynamic and Attachment Therapies

    Holmes does a good job describing the basic premise behind attachment-based therapies. While there are a lot of books describing the general principles and research base for attachment, there are not as many that make the attempt to apply these ideas directly to clinical practice. Holmes does this in a way that is clear and persuasive. My major quip with him is that I don't feel like he does a great job of differentiating disorganized attachment from ambivalent and avoidant strategies. But, overall, the book is a good clinical guide. I selfishly hope that Holmes will go on to run some RCTs so these kinds of treatments get the recognition they deserve.
