Review quote

'This is an important and impressive book and an invaluable contribution to the field.' - Anna Flanigan, YoungMinds Magazine 'This book is clearly organised and accessible, making it easy for the practitioner to consult relevant sections...Howe's final sentence sums up the message of this generally excellent book: 'if relationships are where things developmentally can go wrong, then relationships are where they are most likely to be put right.' - Jeanne Kaniuk - Adoption and Fostering 'A scholarly and very readable piece of work that will be of interest to academics as well as clinicians.' - Journal of Advanced Nursing 'There are some books that you pick up and think, 'I really ought to read that' and you approach them with a sense of dread mitigated only by grim determination. And then you start reading them, and you're hooked. This book was one of them.' - Accord Magazine for the Association of Christian Councellors
