While every parent wants an intelligent, emotionally healthy, and moral child, no one has yet shown exactly how and when these qualities begin. Now Stanley Greenspan, the internationally admired child psychiatrist, identifies the six key experiences which enable children to reach their full potential as human beings.In Building Healthy Minds, parents will learn not only the precise types of games, fantasy play, and conversations with and without words that encourage this development, but also how to tailor these to their particular child. Surprising insights, such the great value of extended parent/child arguments, or the complex intellectual achievements represented by a trip to the refrigerator, will amaze and delight parents. No one but Stanley Greenspan has looked so deeply into the very earliest stages of human development, and no other book makes such vital and effective information available to every parent.

Review:

"A wake-up call about the emotional origins of intellectual development." -- Science Books and Films

"An exciting aspect of Greenspan's new work is its synthesis of developmental psychology with new insights derived from genetics and brain physiology." -- Psychiatric News

"Delight with, and dedication to, families shines through on every page." -- Contemporary Psychology

"Greenspan generously shares his insights....which are brilliant and exciting.... a clear guide to the early stages of emotional development." -- T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

"Groundbreaking work by a leading researcher, theoretician, and clinical psychoanalyst." -- Otto Kernberg, M.D.

"Optimistic and reassuring." -- Los Angeles Times

"Takes its place among recent writing such as Gardner's Frames of Mind, Damasio's Descartes' Error.... A wealth of examples from clinical practice...absorbing reading." -- Washington Post Book World
