This book describes the development of the child-centered attachment therapy (CcAT) model of working with children with attachment difficulties. They describe, in an accessible manner, the complexities involved in supporting parents in their struggles to respond positively to the needs of children who have been traumatized by their early experiences. The author has many years of working with families of children who act out their hurt through difficult behaviors, and the book is full of insights to help both parents and professionals to understand and deal more effectively with such behaviors. The book admirably demonstrates the authors' belief in a therapeutic approach that focuses on attachment and protection as prerequisites for promoting healthy relationships.
