Are you looking for a difference in therapy? A difference that makes a difference?
Have you tried behavioral modification or cognitive behavioral models for yourself, your marriage, or your child, and found yourself still needing a deeper change in your life? Are your children experiencing behavioral problems, such as acting out or being defiant or disrespectful at home or at school, or do they lack self-confidence or have low self-esteem? Attachment Based Therapy may be for you.
Contrary to popular western wisdom that says we should "Pull ourselves up by our bootstraps", and be so independent that we don't need anyone, we are hard-wired for attachment.
Research tells us that all people, children to adults, are happier, more satisfied with their lives, and report fewer physical and mental health problems when they are in secure, satisfying attachment relationships. Such relationships are parent/child, husband/wife and other couple partner relationships.
