Andy Bloor, Senior Lecturer in SEN and Disability Studies, University of Derby, UK
Although short, this revised edition remains for me a core text in supporting teachers' understanding of attachment, its importance and what happens when it goes wrong. Pearce makes this complex field highly accessible without losing any rigour; this book will be one of the most enlightening reads of your career.
Margaret Quinn, Foster Carer
Colby Pearce provides answers. In a straightforward way, he defines and describes normal and disordered attachment. The first edition and my participation in Triple A training have added to my confidence and competence as a carer. This is a ' must read ' book for anyone involved with children. I am pleased to recommend it.
Lynne Peyton, Child Care Consultant, Author & Trainer, UK and Ireland
Practical, credible and evidenced based, this is a must read for all those working directly with troubled, challenging and unhappy children inside and outside the care system. Pearce explains the aetiology of different attachment disorders and provides workable strategies to support children consistently across their care, educational and therapeutic environments.
