The books and items listed on this site provide resources for parents and clinicians searching for information regarding attachment theory, research, treatment and parenting strategies that are in alignment with ATTACh’s policies and principles. They are however, not a complete list of materials (books/resources) regarding attachment and do not necessarily represent the views of ATTACh. The list is subject to change due to periodic review and new information derived from advances in research.

The information provided is NOT intended to replace or supplant a professional assessment by a competent, trained, and knowledgeable medical, psychological, mental health or child development professional. If assessment, treatment, advice, or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.

ATTACh receives dozens of books/manuscripts to review and be considered for our website each year. We have also been asked to write the forward and endorsement on many of these. If this is of interest to you, please send a manuscript or copy of the book and we will have someone on a committee read and review it.
