Resources on Adult Attachment Therapy?
August 18, 2012 9:59 PM Subscribe
I may be starting adult attachment therapy in the next week, on the advice of a crisis counselor and after a few years of on-and-off treatment for anxiety and depression that's not getting me very far. Point me to some quality, hopefully easy to find resources that can spell out what the experience might be like.

The types of questions I'd like to know more about: what's the theoretical base behind adult attachment theory, how long might I expect to commit to therapy like this before seeing results, what's the primary objective of the therapy (put another way: under what conditions should I consider the therapy to have been successful), what questions should I ask as I speak with therapists, what (if any) are the viable alternative therapeutic approaches for understanding and coping with issues related to intimacy and expectations in relationships.
