Welcome to Attachment Theory in Action! Our podcast is dedicated to therapists, social workers, counselors and psychologists who are working with clients from an attachment-based perspective. Interviews are conducted with individuals who are doing clinical work as well as leading attachment theory researchers.
Karen Buckwalter concludes her conversation with Dr. David Wallin on attachment in psychotherapy, the importance and necessity of the therapist's self-revelation, and the impact on the therapist's own psychology.
