MetadataShow full item record
This study was done with the aim to develop a better understanding of the impacts of insecure attachment on a therapist’s work with clients. Understanding the specific ways in which attachment impacts a therapist’s clinical efficacy may help address insecure attachment among therapists to improve client services. Offering supervision to insecurely attached therapists is one means of addressing and ameliorating the negative effects of this attachment style on therapists’ work with clients. A focus on attachment has the potential to improve not only clients’ experiences with therapy but also therapists personal satisfaction with their profession and thus their longevity in the field.
