Reviews

"This clearly written and well organized book provides a road map for the field....Highly recommended." -- Antonio Damasio, Dornsife Professor of Neuroscience and Director, Brain and Creativity Institute
"This is a timely book that offers us all a chance to do better work for children and families." -- T. Berry Brazelton, MD, Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School and founder, Brazelton Touchpoints Center
"[A] very readable and informative book. I state with pride and enthusiasm that the two authors have met the challenge of scientist-practitioner with distinction." -- Paul Satz, Ph.D., ABPP/CN, Professor Emeritus, UCLA-Semel Institute and Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital
"This book is an amazing synthesis, in which development, clinical experience, and neuroscience inform each other in a clear and applied way. As anyone who has worked with challenged infants, young children, and their families knows, understanding the complexity and interaction of all the components involved is a daunting responsibility. The authors' neurorelational framework reconciles theory, clinical observation, and research in a manner which inspires the reader's thought and insight. It is a guide to academic and clinical interdisciplinary practice which should become the standard for all!" -- Serena Wieder, Ph.D., ICDL, Co-Author of The Child with Special Needs, Engaging Autism and the DIR (R) Model
"[H]ighly relevant to all disciplines focused on early development. This integration of theories about brain function within context, and particularly within relationships, is vitally important for understanding development, behavior, assessment, and intervention for all professionals in early learning, early intervention, parenting, and mental health....No one reading this will ever think or act without the perspective of brain, behavior, context, and relationships as the integrating framework for assessment and treatment of developmental concerns." -- Kathryn E. Barnard, RN, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of Washington
"[G]old mine of information....A real gift contained in this book is the supplementary CD that provides further background information, concise summaries of the concepts under consideration, and blank ready-to-print worksheets for immediate use....this book is vital background knowledge for anyone working with at-risk or atypically developing young children and their families." -- PsycCritiques
