"Uniting attachment-focused therapy and neurobiology to help distrustful and traumatised children revive a sense of trust and connection. This groundbreaking book explores how the attachment- focused family therapy model works at a neural level. Investigation of the brain science of early childhood and developmental trauma offers clinicians new insights—and powerful new methods—to help neglected and insecurely attached children regain a sense of safety and security with caring adults." --Publisher's website.
