This book is a must-read for anyone living or working with a young person who has suffered developmental trauma. In a deeply moving way, the reader is taken by the hand, into a wealth of fascinating underlying theory and case studies which explore how to engage young people who have been catastrophically hurt by adults in their lives. I am sure that the book will also become a seminal text for anyone studying Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, which is so effective in promoting change in the most defended of young people.--Margot Sunderland, D.Psych, D.
