Effective Strategies to Care for Children
By Daniel A. Hughes
Attachment security and affect regulation have long been buzzwords in therapy circles, but rarely are they effectively applied to basic parenting skills. Here, a leading attachment specialist brings attachment work inside the therapy room to the outside, equipping caregivers with practical parenting techniques rooted in attachment theory and research.
Nurturing Attachments combines the experience and wisdom of parents and carers with that of professionals to provide support and practical guidance for foster and adoptive parents looking after children with insecure attachment relationships. It provides an accessible overview of attachment theory and a 'House Model of Parenting' which uses the analogy of building a solid house from the ground, brick by brick, to give the reader strategic, step-by-step approaches to developing resilience and emotional growth. The book is illustrated using the stories of Catherine, Zoe, Marcus and Luke, four fictional children in foster care or adoptive homes. Nurturing Attachments provides sound advice and exercises for parents and their children, as well as useful tools that supervising social workers can use both in individual support of carers as well as in training exercises. This book is a valuable tool for adoptive and foster parents, professionals including health and social care practitioners, clinical psychologists, child care professionals, lecturers and students in this field.
