'This monograph contains a rich variety of material that is not usually included in traditional writings on trauma. In addition to the theoretical and clinical perspectives, poetry and storytelling join in to weave a vivid tapestry of multifaceted approaches to trauma. Whilst remaining true to its theoretical base (which, of course, is Bowlby's attachment theory), the monograph succeeds in locating its subject matter in wider perspectives, thus enabling the reader to appreciate the complexity of contributing factors. It is not easy to compile a single publication out of a conference; yet, this monograph achieves its objective by offering a coherent treatment of trauma that also includes some up-to-date approaches and innovations. The papers are written with authority, clarity and sensitivity and will provide the reader with a most beneficial elaboration of trauma from an attachment theory perspective.'- Renos K. Papadopoulos

This outstanding book is an important collection of papers from the 2013 John Bowlby Memorial Conference by accomplished clinicians from different modalities who share their experience of working with people with different kinds of addiction. The papers bring together an in-depth understanding that addictions are a response to, and hold the pain of, broken attachments and are best treated within healthy interpersonal relationships. For a long time the person with an addiction has been seen as the problem with society being able to live in denial of the causes. These papers open up innovative and effective ways of working with people troubled by addiction from an attachment-informed perspective.

This monograph brings together the presentations from the nineteenth John Bowlby Memorial Conference in 2012, organised by The Bowlby Centre. The aim of this was to explore the growing role of the body in relational psychotherapy over the last decade, and to bring us up to date in thinking about the relationship between attachment, the body and trauma. Questions addressed included: How do we anchor the new understandings we are gaining within the framework of attachment? How might the integration of these ideas about the body change what we do in the consulting room? What impact might this have on the therapy relationship? Can we maintain and respect the place of a secure, attuned attachment between therapist and client, and its healing potential, at the centre of our therapeutic work?Pat Ogden's paper "Wisdom of the Body, Lost and Found" was the conference centrepiece and there are contributions from leading clinicians including Roz Carroll, Mark Linington, and Orit Badouk Epstein. Each in their different ways have brought their clinical experiences to life in their presentations and demonstrated this leading edge work in relation to the themes of the body and touch with clients including those so often regarded as "unsuitable for therapy", namely those who have a physical or learning disability or those who have survived extreme trauma through the painful means of psychic protection resulting in dissociative states of mind.Other contributors include Phil Mollon on "Attachment and Energy Psychology" and Nick Totton on "Embodiment and the Social Bond".

As clinicians we want to further our understanding of work with adult clients who have experienced massive and cumulative psychic trauma to which there is no possible adaptive response strategy. This monograph of the 2008 John Bowlby Memorial Conference brings together papers by leading contributors to the field of attachment and trauma that explore the means by which individuals struggle to cope with exposure to war zones, both large scale conflicts and societal breakdown, and the domestic war zones where adults and children experience violence and sexual abuse. These papers seek to further our understanding of the intergenerational transmission of experiences of trauma, as in the examples of the Holocaust and slavery. In times where talk of terror is everywhere, psychotherapists offer a clinical perspective on terror which may translate to the world at large.

Drawn from the John Bowlby Memorial Conference, the theme of this book addresses the often hidden and ignored subject of attachment, race, and culture. Can our individual narratives in relation to race, culture, and attachment be unmasked in the therapeutic dyad to reveal our human connectedness? The contributors explore how the conscious and unconscious meanings of therapists' and clients' racial and cultural identities shape their dialogue. Clinical accounts show how this emerges for both therapist and client in their work together. Kimberlyn Leary, a relational analyst from Boston, discusses the clinical issues in her chapter "You, Me and Them: On Relating to Race". Farhad Dalal's contribution entitled "Racism: Processes of Detachment, Dehumanisation and Hatred" provides an exploration of the origins and destructiveness of the process of "othering." Other contributors include Barbara Ashton, Cascia Davis, Zack Eleftheriadou, Irris Singer, and Kate White, who relate how their own experiences of difference enable their clinical work.

The 2011 John Bowlby Memorial Conference, 'From Broken Attachments to Earned Security - The Role of Empathy in Therapeutic Change', focussed on what needs to take place to facilitate empathy and attunement and ultimately the achievement of earned security. The challenge we posed was how to re-establish a secure sense of self, mutuality, and the capacity for inter/intra-subjectivity when difficulties in empathy and attunement exist as a result of relational trauma. This can be between parent and child, within adult relationships, between client and therapist, or in organisational contexts. The outstanding collection of papers in this volume make a significant contribution to the field of attachment and our understanding of how child rearing affects each aspect of our lives, from the interpersonal to the organisational and societal. Each paper moves beyond the academic and theoretical to provide answers to the many difficult questions we raised at the beginning of the conference. The practical, sometimes step by step explanation of the use of empathy in one-to-one clinical work, in health service organisations or society generally, offer a positive and hopeful way forward. All of the presenters faced up to the challenges of repairing or reversing the impact of derailed attachments and the toxic impact of trauma, offering a realistic but hopeful route to improved relating and healthier attachments. We believe that this publication will be a valuable resource for students, seasoned practitioners, and health service professionals alike who want to enhance their understanding of empathy and attachment in this demanding field. Subject areas covered by your book in order of importance and key subject area: - causes of insecure attachments - impact of relational trauma - how to re-establish a secure sense of self - working one to one and in organisational settings Contributors: Sandra L. Bloom, Sue Gerhardt, Jane Haynes, Oliver James, Andrew Odgers, Anastasia Patrikiou, Eleanor Richards, Kate White

Adolescents with developmental disabilities are a complex population who require specialised treatment and care. This interdisciplinary text examines the processes involved in working with this client group in forensic settings, and explores the ways in which their needs differ from those of other young people who engage in high risk behaviour or offending. The book covers assessment, intervention and treatment options for adolescents with a wide range of developmental disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders, acquired brain injury, developmental traumatology, and complex comorbidities. It describes the obstacles, challenges and opportunities to consider when working with this population, and the role played by various professionals, including forensic psychiatry and psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, education, art psychotherapy and social work. The book also outlines the issues to consider when working in secure and community settings as well as the legal aspects of working with this client group, and the complex issues surrounding risk assessment. The first comprehensive account of forensic issues in adolescents with developmental disabilities, this book will be an indispensible primary resource for a wide range of professionals, including child and adolescent psychiatrists, community psychiatric nurses, developmental paediatricians, social workers and youth workers, lawyers and advocates.

Monograph of the twenty-Second John Bowlby Memorial ConferenceThis monograph draws together contributions from both medical and mental health professionals to explain and explore the concept that puzzling physical pain may be the result of attachment difficulties, including disrupted early attachment relationships and traumatic experiences. Bringing together contributions from psychotherapy, neuroscience and medicine, this volume explores how an understanding of early disrupted attachment relationships, including fear of abandonment, can alleviate chronic physical pain through the therapeutic process. The contributors include Dr Frances Sommer Anderson, whose work has led her to encounter residues of prenatal, perinatal and postnatal emotional trauma and attachment difficulties in the first two years of life within those suffering physical pain. She has been instrumental in bringing medical practitioners and mental health professionals together to discuss this attachment based approach.Dr David Clarke brings a broad medical perspective from his own experience as a physician, whilst Professor Stephen McMahon presents us with the latest research findings on the epigenetics of chronic pain. Dr. Patrick Luyten writes on this theme from the perspective of attachment and the mentalization based approach.This book provides a vital contribution to our understanding of the often perplexing origins of chronic physical pain.

Telling Stories? explores the contemporary state of affairs in the understanding and treatment of psychosis. An inclusive approach to mental distress requires that in order to truly understand psychosis we must begin by listening to those who know this from the inside out; the voices and narrative of those who have been condemned as "unanalysable" and mad. Far from being fantastical, the complex stories that are being articulated communicate painful truths and the myriad ways in which the human psyche survives overwhelming trauma. This book is the culmination of an integrated and creative alliance between those on the cutting edge, experientially, in research, diagnosis, and treatment; this multidisciplinary dialogue proposes a new relational and attachment orientated paradigm for the 21st century. In contrast to the containment model that is currently favoured, this advocates listening and talking therapies, and the healing power of a loving relationship, offering those with psychosis the possibility of more nourishing engagement with the world.

People who have survived ritual abuse or mind control experiments have often been silenced, accused of lying, mocked and disbelieved. Clinicians working with survivors often find themselves isolated, facing the same levels of disbelief and denial from other professionals within the mental health field. This report - based on proceedings from a conference on the subject - presents knowledge and experience from both clinicians and survivors to promote understanding and recovery from organized and ritual abuse, mind control and programming. The book combines clinical presentations, survivors' voices, and research material to help address the ways in which we can work clinically with mind control and cult programming from the perspective of relational psychotherapy.
