Psych Central, recently reviewed The Neurobiology of Attachment-Focused Therapy, by Jon Baylin and Dan Hughes.

Caroline Comeaux Lee’s article on the “Internet’s largest and oldest independent mental health online resource” provides a positive and helpful overview of the book.

I was pleased to read a very favorable book review by Caroline Comeau Lee for PsychCentral of The Neurobiology of Attachment-Focused Therapy (2016) that Jon Baylin and I wrote for W.W.Norton.

Ms. Lee notes in particular how A-R Dialogue and PACE – involving neurobiological processes of safe communication – enable abused and neglected children to move from defensiveness to engagement and begin to trust their therapist and caregivers.

Lee concludes, “Both informative and touching, the Neurobiology of Attachment-Focused Therapy is a magnificent addition to a therapist’s toolbox.”
