“Although this book may be read as a stand-alone resource for parents, it is stronger if utilized as a companion resource for parents engaged in attachment-focused family therapy. What is refreshing about this book’s approach is its focus on behavioral issues as manifestations of attachment disturbances between parents and youth instead of learned problems in need of correction. The parent responsibility then shifts from the implementation of behavioral consequences to enhancing and deepening the parent/child relationship as the chief instrument of change.” (ASAP Newsletter)
“[A] practical text for students and professional interested in learning how to parent with attachment in mind…an excellent book, and I would recommend it to every trainee and to parents...” (The Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)
