Concise and easy-to-understand, this book provides an introduction to what attachment means and how to recognise attachment disorder in children.

Colby Pearce explains how complex problems in childhood may stem from the parent-child relationship during a child's early formative years, and later from the child's engagement with the broader social world. The book explores the mind-set of difficult and traumatised children and the motivations behind their complex tendencies and behaviours. It goes on to offer a comprehensive set of tried-and-tested practical strategies that can be used with children affected by an attachment disorder. This second edition has been updated to include the new DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for Reactive Attachment Disorder and an increased number of illustrative case vignettes.

This is a perfect introduction to the subject for parents, carers and practitioners in supportive roles caring for children.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Although short, this revised edition remains for me a core text in supporting teachers' understanding of attachment, its importance and what happens when it goes wrong. Pearce makes this complex field highly accessible without losing any rigour; this book will be one of the most enlightening reads of your career. -- Andy Bloor, Senior Lecturer in SEN and Disability Studies, University of Derby, UK
Colby Pearce provides answers. In a straightforward way, he defines and describes normal and disordered attachment. The first edition and my participation in Triple A training have added to my confidence and competence as a carer. This is a ' must read ' book for anyone involved with children. I am pleased to recommend it. -- Margaret Quinn, Foster Carer
Practical, credible and evidenced based, this is a must read for all those working directly with troubled, challenging and unhappy children inside and outside the care system. Pearce explains the aetiology of different attachment disorders and provides workable strategies to support children consistently across their care, educational and therapeutic environments. -- Lynne Peyton, Child Care Consultant, Author & Trainer, UK and Ireland
