A courageous, innovative, and clinically sensitive work, Building the Bonds of Attachment illustrates the process of repairing children who have been severely damaged by abuse and neglect. In quasi-novel format, Daniel Hughes focuses on one girl's struggles within the foster care system; by portraying her inner world, he enables us to understand and empathize with the dynamics of reactive attachment disorder. Hughes's approach to treatment comes alive, thanks to the interweaving of narrative with a wealth of clinical information. (Karen B. Walant)
Dr. Hughes intersperses insightful commentary with the story of one child's difficult journey through foster care and therapy following early neglect and abuse. Readable and compelling, this book will be a valuable resource for foster and adoptive parents and for therapists dedicated to helping unattached children recover. (Laurie C. Miller)
Though recognition of attachment disorder and its tragic consequences has increased, treatment continues to be arduous and profoundly discouraging. Building the Bonds of Attachment offers clinicians a sturdy framework and practical strategy for facing these overwhelming cases. Perhaps even more importantly, it will enlighten, affirm, and buoy the adoptive parents, foster families, caseworkers, and teachers who accompany the children on their courageous and daunting journey toward attachment. (Richard Bromfield)
Daniel Hughes conveys the inner life of poorly attached children and offers a sound and comprehensive clinical approach to the difficult task of bringing out the child's full humanity. This important contribution to the clinical literature has the added bonus of being as riveting a page-turner as any novel. (Ellen F. Wachtel)

While it's an easy read in the ordinary sense, for anyone close to a child with this problem, it is an emotionally difficult
read-very heart wrenching. We have an adopted child in our family with these issues, and the author has portrayed them very accurately. So, I had to put the book down and take a break several times.
However, the book does give the lay person a much better understanding of the profound problems faced in trying to raise and treat such children.
