Book Description:

Discover a revolutionary approach to attachment theory that teaches readers how to heal their inner child to change their anxious, avoidant, or disorganized attachment style in relationships, friendships, at work, and home—perfect for readers of How to Do the WorkPolysecure, and Amir Levine’s Attached. Did you know that attachment style impacts more than romantic relationships? As it turns out, most of us are thinking about Attachment Theory all wrong, and triple board-certified clinical and forensic neuropsychologist Dr. Judy Ho is here to set the record straight.

Grounded in the science of attachment, Dr. Judy’s game-changing approach shows that our attachment style impacts every aspect of our lives: friendships, career, goal setting, and, critically, our sense of self. Moreover, we can all learn to become securely attached—no matter what attachment style we developed in childhood—meaning that we can reclaim our ability to feel safe, loved, and capable of achieving the life we’ve always wanted.

Through Dr. Judy’s innovative program, readers will learn to identify their attachment style, recognize their core needs and wounds, and implement evidence-based practical tools to heal their inner child as they develop the secure attachment we all need to thrive.

Readers will also benefit from:
  • A new attachment style quiz to identify your attachment style in all areas of life.
  • A personalized approach that allows you to start making positive change today.
  • More than two dozen transformative exercises to support your journey to healing.

With warmth, authority, and a bias to action, The New Rules of Attachment is a call to achieving unconditional self-love and a meaningful, joyful life.

What made you write a book about…

I wrote a book about attachment because it is at the core of all negative self-talk, unproductive behavioral patterns, and struggles with difficult feelings. Attachment bonds form our core self-beliefs – what we think about ourselves, how we relate to others, and how we respond to challenging situations. 

Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?

Waiting for inspiration to write is not a great way to get over writer’s block, because you often won’t have inspiration. For me, setting a routine with deadlines and people who can help me stay accountable were the keys to getting my work done on time.

Where do you write?

I write in a variety of places that help me to focus and tune out the rest of the world. Sometimes that can’t be achieved in my home, so I will go to the coffee shop, out in nature, and on rare occasion, in the dark when everyone else in the house has gone to sleep so I can have that quiet, uninterrupted time.

Favorite travel spot?

My favorite travel spot is Italy. There is so much amazing culture and food there and a lot to explore. I learn so much about myself and others just by visiting and touring historical sites and talking with residents.

If you’re a mom writer, how do you balance your time?

I think you have to be realistic about what you can accomplish in a day, and your schedule could be hijacked at any moment, so exercising self-compassion is key. Even if I don’t get everything done on my to-do list, if I’m making progress, I allow myself to celebrate that. I am really mindful of my energy and mindset, so that if there are days where I am just too exhausted to do quality work, then I move to an activity that I can still do and be productive but doesn’t require my complete cognitive dedication (like cleaning up an area of the home that is cluttered, sorting through bills, or writing an outline for a chapter instead of the prose).
