In this pioneering book, psychologist Joseph Nicolosi explains the deep causal connections between human sexual development and early child-parent bonding. Trauma resulting from bonding failure leaves the boy with deep, unmet male attachment needs. In puberty, these needs are romanticized and eroticized. As his clients tell us in their stories, same-sex longings diminish as they recover from the trauma.

Shame & Attachment Loss guides the reader through the therapeutic techniques of Reparative Therapy (TM) that Dr. Nicolosi developed over thirty years of successful clinical work with thousands of clients from many cultures and faith traditions.

Written in three parts, the first section of Shame & Attachment Loss describes the psychodynamics of same-sex attraction as understood by Reparative Therapy (TM). Part Two sets forth the various phases of treatment. Part Three follows a number of clients as Dr. Nicolosi guides them through the process of grieving their loss, transforming its meaning, and healing their wounds.

  Endorsed by numerous notable leaders in psychotherapy, including two former presidents of the American Psychological Association, Joseph Nicolosi's book offers practical guidance for counselors and therapists as well as strugglers.
