Full description for Born for Love
Uncover the startling importance of empathyFrom birth, when babies' fingers instinctively cling to those of adults, their bodies and brains seek an intimate connection--a bond made possible by empathy, the remarkable ability to love and to share the feelings of others. In this unforgettable book, award-winning science journalist Maia Szalavitz and renowned child-psychiatrist Bruce D. Perry explain how empathy develops, why it is essential both to human happiness and for a functional society, and how it is threatened in the modern world.
