This new title in the Wiley Series in Clinical Psychology is the first to explore the role of attachment theory in understanding and helping children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). There is a growing evidence base of interventions for IDD underpinned by attachment theory, including direct intervention and the application of attachment theory to understand the interactions and relationships that occur between individuals with IDD and those who support them.

Attachment in Intellectual and Developmental Disability: A Clinician s Guide to Practice and Research brings together leading clinicians and researchers from around the globe to present and integrate cutting–edge models and approaches that have previously been accessible only to specialists; they discuss the role of attachment theory in clinical practice when working across the lifespan of people with IDD, and the theoretical basis of attachment difficulties and how these are presented. They also discuss practical approaches to assessment and intervention, using clear case studies to illustrate the applications of attachment theory to clinical work, practical advice and useful further resources.
