I've just heard that a book I wrote with two colleagues, The Attachment Therapy Companion: Key Practices for Treating Children & Families is now in production and should be out in early 2012. The book describes what are the standards of care for this treatment. From the Introduction This book is an important contribution to the field of trauma treatment and attachment-focused the therapy. It provides the clinician with a framework to assess, develop treatment plans, and provide treatment in a comprehensive and integrated manner. College professors are afforded a guide for classroom instruction. The book will provide consumers with the necessary tools and information to make better informed decisions regarding the adequacy of care they are getting. College professors will find this book a useful adjunct for family therapy, treatment, and ethics classes and the study guide will assist in classroom instruction. Finally the book will provide judges, child welfare professionals, insurance companies, and others with a framework for evaluating proposed plans of care. It is my belief that this book will mark a new stage in the development of attachment- focused therapy by delineating what are the standards of care for the treatment of attachment and trauma disorders.
