Addressing Parent-Child Conflict: Attachment-Based Interventions with Parents
Kindsvatter, Aaron; Desmond, Kimberly J.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v91 n1 p105-112 Jan 2013
This article describes the use of attachment theory to address parent-child conflict. The authors propose that parent-child conflict is attributable to the unmet attachment needs of both children and parents and that attachment insecurity results in problematic patterns of attachment in parent-child relationships. Three conversational frames are presented as a model for applying attachment theory to assist parents in resolving parent-child conflict.
