About this item

The author describes the use of developmental-relational therapy with adolescents with trauma, which focuses on attachment and feelings in a secure relationship, in addition to learning self-regulation. She details how the therapy does not focus on the acquisition of skills, sees self-soothing as a more advanced ability addressed once the adolescent can experience and identify states of connection and calm in relationships, places greater responsibility for regulation on therapists, uses different intervention strategies based on attachment patterns, sees all emotional expression as attachment based, and views adolescent therapy as different from child treatment. She discusses attachment theory, developmental trauma in adolescence, and interpersonal neurobiology and co-regulation of affect; the process of therapy; and interventions for increasing connection with preoccupied and dismissive adolescents, treating dissociative adolescents, including parents and families in treatment, and ending therapy.
