About the Author

Kent Hoffman is a clinician, developmental researcher, and co-founder (with Bert Powell and Glen Cooper) of Circle of Security International. His life work has included a central focus with homeless adults and street-dependent teen parents. Hoffman currently travels extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, teaching intervention approaches supporting secure attachment in children.

Glen Cooper has worked as a psychotherapist with individuals and families in both agency and private practice settings since the 1970s. He has extensive training in family systems, object relations, attachment theory, and infant mental health assessment. Cooper also works as a treatment foster parent and long-time Head Start consultant. Since 1985, he has had a shared clinical practice in Spokane, Washington, with Kent Hoffman and Bert Powell. Much of their work has focused on the creation and dissemination of the Circle of Security, for which each has received the Washington Governor's Award for Innovation in Child Abuse Prevention and the New York Attachment Consortium's Bowlby-Ainsworth Award, among other honors.

Bert Powell began his clinical work as an outpatient family therapist in a community mental health center, where he helped a broad range of families find and use unacknowledged strengths to address their problems. Powell is certified in psychoanalytic psychotherapy by The Masterson Institute in New York City. He is adjunct assistant professor in the Graduate School of Counseling Psychology at Gonzaga University and serves as an International Advisor to the editorial board of the Journal of Attachment and Human Development. Since 1985, he has had a shared clinical practice in Spokane, Washington, with Kent Hoffman and Glen Cooper. Much of their work has focused on the creation and dissemination of the Circle of Security, for which each has received the Washington Governor's Award for Innovation in Child Abuse Prevention and the New York Attachment Consortium's Bowlby-Ainsworth Award, among other honors.
