Like all new and expectant parents, you want the best for your son or daughter. You want them to grow up in a healthy, loving environment that will help them establish healthy, loving relationships as they grow into adulthood. But what are the factors that determine one's ability to form healthy relationships, and how can we, as parents, ensure that we are doing everything we can to make that happen? Attachment Theory, a transformative approach to the psychology of relationships, can help answer these questions.

The Importance of Love Rays: Developing Secure Attachment in Infancy and Childhood is a groundbreaking, yet accessible, handbook for parents and anyone seeking to understand and apply Attachment Theory to their own lives. Drawing on twenty years of experience working with people struggling to form healthy relationships, Paula Sacks combines research-backed explanations with a heart-warming tale to teach, encourage, and inspire new and expecting parents. Featuring a foreword by trauma expert Ruth A. Lanius, M.D., Ph.D., and an introduction by Attachment specialist David S. Elliott, Ph.D., this invaluable work is an insightful, accessible guide to raising emotionally healthy children. In this unique and beautifully illustrated book, you will find:

The Five Primary Conditions for Healthy Attachment and how to apply them to your parenting; How to convey vital emotional support non-verbally, though Love Rays; Parental behaviors that support healthy emotional development; Practical advice for several stages of your child's development-including the critically important first eighteen months; Ten tips for putting the Attachment Theory into practice ... and more.
