Building the Bonds of Attachment: Awakening Love in Deeply Troubled Children

 
Share

Katie, an abused, neglected, and poorly attached child, spent the first years of her life with parents who cared little about her. As a result she is an angry, unhappy, and manipulative kid. Is there any hope for her to grow up and become a healthy and happy adult? In BUILDING THE BONDS OF ATTACHMENT Dr. Daniel Hughes follows Katie through her life with abusive birth parents and many foster homes, showing how therapeutic parenting combined with specialized therapy can heal negative effects of reactive attachment disorder and transform children like Katie into happy, content, and caring people.

BUILDING THE BONDS OF ATTACHMENT is the second edition of a bestselling book for parents of children with reactive attachment disorder as well as for social workers and therapists. Masterfully-written and engaging, BUILDING THE BONDS OF ATTACHMENT, blends attachment theory and research, and trauma theory with general principles of both parenting and child and family therapy in developing a model for intervention. This book is a must-have practical guide for the adult—whether professional or parent—who endeavors to help poorly attached children.

The second edition of this widely popular book presents 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.
