Doing Psychotherapy,
A Trauma and Attachment-informed Approach

How to start, do, and complete psychotherapy that is trauma-and attachment-based as well as culturally informed. 

Most books about doing psychotherapy are tied to particular psychotherapeutic practices. Here, seasoned clinician, trainer and consultant Robin Shapiro teaches readers the ins and outs of a trauma- and attachment- informed approach that is not tied to any one model or method. She says, “This book contains everything I wish I would have learned in graduate school.”


Robin provides 1, 2, and 3 day workshops on a multitude of therapeutic interventions and modalities.
