Building the Bonds of Attachment is the second edition of a critically and professionally acclaimed book for social workers, therapists, and parents who strive to assist children with reactive attachment disorder. This work is a composite case study of the developmental course of one child following years of abuse and neglect. Building the Bonds of Attachment focuses on both the specialized psychotherapy and parenting that is often necessary in facilitating a child's psychological development and attachment security. It develops a model for intervention by blending attachment theory and research, trauma theory, and the general principles of parenting, and child and family therapy. This book is a practical guide for the adult—whether professional or parent—who endeavors to help such children. The second edition of this widely popular book will present the many changes in the intervention model over the past 8 years. These include many changes in both the psychotherapist's and parent's interventions. The attachment history of the adults is made more relevant. There is greater congruence between attachment theory and research and the interventions being demonstrated as well as greater reference to this theory and research.

This book was recommended to me by a therapist who is specially trained in working with children suffering from attachment issues. It is by far the best book I've read on the subject. As it tells the story of this horribly abused child, it also explains the strategy used by her therapist and foster mother to reach her. I don't think reading the book is enough to go forward and treat a child, but it does offer hope plus awareness into what sort of therapy and parenting is necessary.

"Building the Bonds of Attachment" is a book on parenting a poorly attached child. Mr. Hughes uses the story of a fictitious girl, Katie, to describe the life of a poorly attached child. He starts the story with her neglectful and abusive parents and follows her through three temporary foster placements and then into the therapeutic parenting by Jackie. Because of the story format, this is an easy to read book.However, I don't think this book can or should be a stand alone book on attachment. I often wondered what he was describing and talking about in some sections, and I found myself wishing that he had explained some of Jackie's methods more thoroughly. This book needs books such as "Adopting the Hurt Child," "Attaching in Adoption," "Holding Time," and "Parenting with Love and Logic," as companions to it.
