Publication: Attachment, Relationships and Food: From Cradle to Kitchen

Our Senior Consultant Psychotherapist Graeme Galton has a chapter in this fascinating new book.  Using attachment theory as a lens for understanding the role of food in our everyday lives, this book explores relationships with other people, with ourselves and between client and therapist, through our connection with food. Enriched throughout with diverse clinical case studies, this edited collection illuminates how relationships to food can be a rich source of insight and understanding for psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and other counselling therapists working today.
