Many adoptees join their new families after having endured multiple traumatic experiences, which interrupts their development. Bringing together the latest research in
brain science with the field of attachment, this book considers how the two can be linked to help children in healing both the brain and the heart.
Laying out the many factors that can affect a child's mental health, it shows how parents can help to improve the development of a delayed child. Accessibly explaining cuttingedge neuroscience for parents, it gives the information needed to help with a traumatised child's social, emotional and moral development.
