    1. This one read like a textbook, and therefore, took me a while to get through. It is very thorough on the neurological effects of abused/neglected/traumatized children and ways to treat/parent them. Honestly, my favorite part was on page 10 of this 500+ page book when the author states that she too was a child of trauma and that the only way she was truly able to heal was "through experiencing the love of Christ." That was the MOST important thing I read in this book but all the science and studi [...]


    2. Intended for adoption professionals. I didn't find much new here and recommend Attaching in Adoption: Practical Tools for Today's Parents instead.


    3. I have to admit I skimmed and even skipped some sections, focusing in on the sections of direct use to me. It has lots of good information.


    4. A helpful book for professionals working with adopted children and their families, as well as for parents who are up for the task of sorting through a lot of clinical and other information that may not apply to their specific case. It is not a simple "how-to" manual, but does contain lots of simple and direct ideas parents can use in helping their children to become more regulated, more optimistic and more open to growth.Gray does a good job of presenting the effects of trauma on the developing [...]



    5. wonderful reading for anyone who has had abuse or neglect in their childhood or knows people/works with people who do. adoption doesn't really factor into it- the author just intended the book to support families and case workers who work with kids in that field. this book really breaks down the sometimes irreversible damage done in early childhood when abuse or neglect are present. at the same time, she has SUPER practical ideas for helping heal that damage and gives a lot of hope.


    6. The first half had some interesting stuff about trauma & neglect, but I think I learned more about the neuroscience and biological effects from Bruce Perry's book. There are some good suggestions for families, I guess, though many seem far away for us right now. Definitely seems to be a better book for case workers.


    7. Another great adoption reference book with great information. A must for any parent of a child that has experienced any type of trauma.


    8. I bought this book at a training by the author. Her presentation was excellent- compassionate, knowledgable, and engaging. I have high hopes for the book.
