Attachment and Adult Clinical  Practice

Toni Mandelbaum, Ph.D. ’89

Attachment theory speaks to one’s biological drive to connect, to relate, and to feel heard. Attachment and Adult Clinical  Practice by Toni Mandelbaum, Ph.D. ’89 addresses its history as well as its integration with neurobiology, psychophysiology, theories of emotion, regulation theory, and mentalization theory. It explores how clinicians can connect with their clients so that they feel completely seen and heard. (Routledge, 2020)
