I met up with Robert T. Muller, PhD, recently and we talked about his latest and previous book:
In this interview, I was particularly interested to learn more about why he wrote about the avoidant client and the difficulties the avoidant client faces while starting and progressing in trauma therapy.
Furthermore, Robert explains, with clear examples, about the different attachment styles and the challenges of each of these styles.
Troubled attachment is a natural outcome of challenging life experiences or trauma.
This interview finishes with Robert’s advice to trauma therapists who are dealing with an avoidant client attachment style and some keys points to keep in mind for the avoidant client.
