The Little Book of Attachment brings DDP to the field of mental health and explains why a developmental and relational approach helps mental health and its treatment.

Dan and Ben explain how as an attachment based model, DDP may help address a triad of developmental features associated with attachment which are also common in child mental health problems.

Alongside practical recommendations and clinical dialogue, they delve deeper into the research and attachment theory to outline how DDP can be useful alongside other treatments, in addressing child mental health problems.

“What a pleasure to be able to welcome the Dutch translation of The Little Book of Attachment into our increasingly varied assortment of books related to attachment and DDP!

With Anneke Vinke’s excellent foreword and thorough proofreading, I am confident that this translation of The Little Book of Attachment will be of great value to both Dutch therapists and many others.”
