ABSTRACT

Introduction: ReAttach is a new, multi-modal psychological intervention based on the theoretical principles of arousal regulation, information processing and schema therapy. Practical research indicates that ReAttach significantly reduces psychological problems in both adults and children. Theories on ReAttach state that this is done by creating functional schemas, which in turn create more effective coping styles in clients and decrease psychological distress. Objectives: This article aims to provide a better understanding of ReAttach theory and give insight in the treatment process. Methods: This is done by linking theory to the treatment process of a young adult (N=1) with symptoms of social anxiety. Results: The psychological distress in the client decreased from 32 (serious problems) to 12 (no problems). Conclusion: ReAttach decreased symptoms of anxiety in the young adult and the theoretical principles of arousal regulation, information processing and schema therapy seem applicable to the case.
