Description - The Search for the Secure Base by Jeremy Holmes

With The Search for the Secure Base , attachment becomes, for the first time, a therapeutic modality in its own right. The book 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. Using a range of clinical and literary examples to illustrate techniques used (such as providing a secure base, methods of listening and responding, facilitation of emergent meaning and reflexive practice), it argues strongly for a rapprochement between psychoanalysis and attachment theory. The Search for the Secure Base will be welcomed by practitioners and trainees in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychiatry, psychology, counselling, social work and nursing.
