A fantastic book, well written in a friendly easy to read manner. As a foster carer, i found it very useful and especially liked the fact that it is written in a way which allows you to access the section required without having to re-read the whole book. She writes from experience and gives examples which as foster carers, we can identify with and learn from. The book gave us a deeper understanding of where the children we care for are coming from. The book gives us examples of how to help these children overcome some very traumatic episodes of their lives.

Format: Paperback
Kate Cairns takes us through likely scenarios when dealing with adopted/fostered children. This book strips away the glamour of fostering and adoption to reveal the much more challenging, and much more rewarding reality. This is a really useful guide to what is likely to be going on in that little head and why. In particular she presents the science of brain development and the impact of damage during development in an accessible way. The interventions suggested are practical. She also explains the impact of various behaviours on others - for example the angry (or sad) child who projects the anger so that s/he is seemingly always surrounded by people who demonstrate the same behaviours. Interestingly the open acknowledgement of the permanent damage that may be done to children by abuse/neglect does not detract from the realistic optimism of the message. Her experience and expertise shines out.

This is a tough but worthwhile read - I found the first few chapters quite helpful and thought they provided some interesting and useful experiences with very good detail behind the stories, bringing them to life. Unfortunately, the book changes style somewhere around the half way point and gets more generic which makes it a slog to finish which is a shame as it's obvious that the authors have so much more that could be shared.

As a trainee Psychodynamic Counsellor I found Kate's book most informative and very readable. She writes with great understanding and depth of knowledge. A very human book, and a good companion to Winnicott's attachment work, I believe this is well worth keeping for reference too.

I have attended the authors lectures which are just as excellent as her book. If you work with children this book is for you. It will change the way you work with children who have had traumatic life experiences. If you think you know all there is to know about children and trauma then this book will open your eyes.
