Building the Bonds of Attachment focuses on both the specialized psychotherapy and parenting that is often necessary in facilitating a child's psychological development and attachment security.

This book is a practical guide for the adultwhether professional or parentwho endeavors to help such children. The second edition of this widely popular book will present the many changes in the intervention model over the past 8 years. These include many changes in both the psychotherapist's and parent's interventions. The attachment history of the adults is made more relevant. There is greater congruence between attachment theory and research and the interventions being demonstrated as well as greater reference to this theory and research.

I read this book about 10 years ago, and it changed my life. It has helped me do a much better job as an elementary school teacher, and it has helped me to understand the violent crime that is so pervasive in our society. This is a "must-read" for everyone, no matter what walk of life a person is from.
