My friendly Educational Psychologist suggester we read this in order to help support some children in our school. Dear goodness I wish I had found this book 10 years ago when I started my career. Granted I am only currently on chapter 3 (started reading it this morning) but already it is challenging my thinking on how I approach children in school and how to support those who have attachment issues and a mis-trust of adults. A very clearly, cleverly written book buy two experts in the fields of Attachment and Behaviour. Dan Hughes' use of PACE and Louise Bombers ability relate to children's experiences make this an amazing read. Not only that but it guides you through the stages of intervention and reiterates that it is a slow slow process which needs to be integrated into the fast paced world of education. Thankfully I'm in Scotland but to my English counterparts someone send that idiot Gove a copy of this!!!!
