Child-Centred Attachment Therapy The CcAT Programme
This book describes the development of the Child-Centred Attachment Therapy (CcAT) model of working with children with attachment difficulties. The authors describe, in a vivid and accessible manner, the complexities involved in supporting parents in their struggles to respond positively to the needs of children who have been traumatised by their early experiences. After many years of working with a number of families with children who act out their hurt through difficult behaviours, the authors offer their insights to help both parents and professionals to understand and deal more effectively with such behaviours. The CcAT therapists give an impressive account of their belief in a therapeutic approach that focuses on attachment and protection as prerequisites for promoting healthy relationships.
