"Therapeutic Parenting takes the discussion of raising attachment impaired children to a whole new level. It is not simply a how-to manual focusing on behavior (both the parents' and dhild's), but examines the feelings underneath the behavior. It gently helps parents understand our own attachment styles and how that shapes our relationships with our children. Especially helpful are the tutorials of how to respond to our children's challenges with empathy, which for many parents, is like learning a whole new language." --Lynne Lyon, MSW, LCSW founder, Attach-China/International, Center for Attachment & Trauma Therapy, LLC
"Therapeutic Parenting, compiled by ATTACh, will assist parents who are trying to understand and help their children. As therapists, trainers and authors in the trauma and attachment field for many years, we recognize and appreciate what a valuable resource this manual is for parents and professionals. Very well done. --Terry M. Levy, PhD, BCFE & Michael Orlans, MA, DAPA Co-directors, Evergreen Psychotherapy Center, Attachment Treatment and Training Institute
