Customer Review

on September 12, 2007
In his new book, David Wallin displays an extraordinarily versatile command of information derived from a wide variety of disciplines which are interimplicated in his integrative work on contemporary psychotherapeutic theory and technique.Dr. Wallin's articulate description of the attachment theory tradition, followed by his skillful elaboration of the impact of specific kinds of early attachment interactions on the development of the experience of self, set up his clear analysis of the clinical ramifications of what the therapist is likely to encounter while working. His emphasis on the co-construction of experience in the therapeutic encounter and the centrality of nonverbal communication, as well as, his thoughts about how to work with these clinical phenomena make this theoretically eloquent book also very practical.As David Wallin demonstrates with his many poignant vignettes, when the going gets rough, the respectful tentativeness with which he attempts to offer a different experience to people who have had their ability to trust and hope shredded is moving. The academic rigor, coupled with the warmth and contactfulness which his work conveys, is impressive.
