At last! Newton’s Attachment Connection takes attachment and neuroscience into the mainstream of parenting and clinical practice, bringing clarity and insight to the often misunderstood world of family bonds. Using a sensitive combination of informative vignettes, lucid explanations, and developmental milestones, she deftly illuminates the nature of the bond that develops between parents and their babies and the profound influence which this bond will have on a baby’s ability to form secure attachments. As a therapist and academic, Newton’s comprehensive knowledge of the socio-emotional development of children shines through with intelligence, passion, humor, and sensitivity.
—Sir Richard Bowlby Bt., president of the Centre for Child Mental Health in London, UK
Drawing on the latest scientific research and her extensive clinical experience, Newton has written a practical guide for parents who seek to foster an attachment bond with their young children (infants through three years of age). Since a secure attachment forms the foundation for children’s later social and emotional development, this is must read book for parents.
—Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, professor of psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ, and cofounder and director emeritus of the Association for Play Therapy
