“[A] gentle, compassionate, and down-to-earth book. . . In richly detailed clinical vignettes, Gold explores a variety of problems with children that worry parents. . . She explains how important the role of the therapist is in helping parents. . . Technical details provided are fascinating. . . This book provides valuable information and insights useful for childcare providers and pediatricians as well as for parents.”
“Filled with brilliant insights, transformative vignettes and directly applicable tools, Gold’s new book shows just how clinicians can learn to offer the space that provides for. . . healing.”
- Psych Central
“Gold is the best interpreter of developmental research into early childcare and clinical practice writing today. This is a brilliant book that entertains as it informs. It covers all the exciting areas of current research in the masterly, highly accessible way that only the most sophisticated scholars can accomplish. I love it, and recommend it to all students, all teachers, and most parents.”
- Peter Fonagy, PhD, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis, UCL; Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, London, UK
“A highly readable text, wise and empathic, that integrates theory, recent research, and vignettes to guide clinicians in understanding the behavioral problems of infants and young children and listening thoughtfully to help parents resolve tensions at a very meaningful point in their child's development.”
- Michael S. Jellinek, MD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School
“A wonderfully helpful new book. Dr. Gold knits together a sturdy clinical and theoretical foundation to reveal vivid understanding of infant mental health and its boundless promise. She has an especially welcome ability to translate the field's sometimes 'insider' vocabulary into a language that speaks to mental health professionals, pediatricians, and parents alike. This is a book of substance and readability that readers will want to hold―many dog-eared copies are its future.”
- Kyle D. Pruett, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Nursing Yale Child Study Center
