What is Attachment-Based Therapy?
Attachment-based therapy is an evidence-based treatment that emphasizes understanding the client’s relationships with significant others throughout their life. It focuses on recognizing, accepting, and reflecting on how a person’s past experiences influence their current behavior and emotions. This therapy can help clients recognize maladaptive strategies they use to cope with feelings of abandonment or disconnection by exploring the connection between their early life experiences and how they relate to their current condition, thoughts, relationships, and behaviors. By uncovering negative relationship patterns, providing secure attachments in therapy, and strengthening the therapeutic alliance between both therapist and client, attachment-based therapy seeks to enable individuals move towards a more fulfilling and meaningful lifestyle.
How does Attachment-Based Therapy Work?
Attachment-based therapy (ABT) is a type of psychotherapy that examines an individual’s connection with important figures in childhood as well as adulthood. It works by helping individuals make connections between the dynamics from their early life and current struggles or conflicts. ABT aims to create an understanding of how those relationships may be influencing behaviors, interpretations and emotions. The therapist uses established techniques such as psychoeducation, child developmental guidance principles, talk therapy, role play, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT). By exploring the patient’s present experiences that are influenced by attachment style they can understand why they make certain choices or react to things in a certain way. Furthermore, creating a safe therapeutic atmosphere allows attachments to be reworked and reconsidered which can lead to healing emotionally.
What are the benefits of Attachment-Based Therapy?
Unlike traditional talk therapy, which emphasizes understanding one’s thoughts and feelings, Attachment-Based Therapy provides a unique advantage of focusing on strengthening the relationship between client and therapist. This collaborative process helps clients develop healthier relationships with others that are based on feelings of trust instead of fear or insecurity. Additionally, it allows clients to become more aware of the automatic reactions they have in relationships and helps them learn new skills to control their responses in the presence of triggers. Studies have found that Attachment-Based Therapy has lasting positive effects – individuals report greater positive connections with other people years after participating in this form of counseling.
Are the outcomes of Attachment-Based Therapy permanent?
Attachment-based therapy holds the potential for providing patients with lasting change, however it is important to recognize that the results are not always permanent. In many cases, clients who have engaged in Attachment-Based Therapy may still need additional or ongoing therapy to build upon the progress they have made. Establishing strong foundational relationships can bring healing and growth that works to break negative patterns of behavior and thought, but it often takes more than one treatment session to truly create lasting improvement that endures over time. It is also important to remember that each individual’s treatment experiences will vary and each client must be willing to commit to making lasting change in order to ensure they are getting the most value from their experience.
Who can benefit from Attachment-Based Therapy?
Attachment-Based Therapy can be beneficial for individuals who have difficulty forming healthy relationships and managing their feelings. It helps teach them to become more in tune with their emotions and provides deeper insight into their relationships. The approach has been praised by mental healthcare practitioners as an effective way of addressing attachment style issues that affect the quality of life. Those struggling with interpersonal traumas and insecure connections with others may find this type of therapy particularly useful in handling and resolving these underlying issues. In doing so, it removes psychological blocks that prevent them from fostering meaningful intimacy with others, whether it be family, friends or romantic partners.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.
I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.
So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
