The pervasive effects of maltreatment on child development can be repaired when parents use effective, empirically validated, and evidence-based methods.

The book will be useful to child welfare and residential treatment professionals as well as professors teaching family-therapy, child-welfare, and child-treatment courses.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The heart and soul of a literary gem in our field is the extent to which the authors demonstrate, at every step, the connection between what they recommend and a clear developmental principle. This connection is made with compassion and precision throughout Becker-Weidman and Shell's book. Hungry and struggling parents will find this extraordinary book nutritious, practical, clear, and principled. -- Michael Trout, PhD, director of the Infant-Parent Institute
This is a very readable, easily digestible book offering a diverse smorgasbord of intervention strategies for parents of children struggling with attachment/trauma issues. Devoid of psychobabble, caregivers will find the chapters to be a fast read-insightful and user-friendly. -- Steven G. Gray, PhD, diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Neuropsychology, and author of The Maltreated Child: Finding What Lurks Beneath
The old adage is that it takes a village to raise a child. If that is true, then it takes a special village to raise a child with special needs. The collected wisdom of the contributors to Attachment Parenting weaves together an integrated approach to helping children heal from the effects of early attachment-related traumas. At the center of this special village is the critical role of the parent as the primary catalyst for and creator of experiences of healing. The concepts of Dan Hughes' Dyadic Developmental Therapy model provide the unifying principles, which continually foster empathic connection with the child and promote real healing. This lovely book offers both pragmatic suggestions and inspiration for hope. -- Vicky Kelly, PsyD, LCSW, co-editor of Attachment-Focused Therapy and past president of the Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children (ATTACh)
