Empathic Care for Children with Disorganized Attachments
A Model for Mentalizing, Attachments and Trauma-Informed Care Synthesising attachment, trauma and mentalization theory into a useful practice model, this book proposes ways of meeting the needs arising in children and young people with disorganized attachments. Focusing on the importance of interpersonal bonds to facilitate the child's capacity to mentalize, it aims to equip the reader with the appropriate skills to provide effective, sustained and, most importantly, empathic care to the most vulnerable and troubled children. This structured psychotherapeutic approach to caregiving will enable the development of child carer relationships and can be used to create informed, safe environments that support both the young person and the caregiver.
