Building the Bonds of Attachment - Awakening Love in Deeply Troubled Children by Daniel A. Hughes. This book is highly recommended to foster families and social workers but I would recommend it to anyone who would like an understanding of attachment theory. Where most books had my eyes glazing over this book had me enthralled. Daniel Hughes combines a fictionalised case history with theory. The book tells the story of Katie who suffers extreme emotional and physical neglect and shows the consequences of that neglect. It follows her journey from being taken from her parents to a series of foster families until finally she is placed with a foster family that knows how to work with her.

I have been wanting to write a blog for a while now as people often ask for recommendations to books and courses.
Taming your Outer Child: Overcoming Self-Sabotage - the Aftermath of Abandonment by Susan Anderson gives insight into why we are sometimes our own worst enemy. This book is a good model to use in trying to understand the behaviour we undulge in that causes us so much distress.
As I was thinking generally about books that can be helpful, I remember reading Women who Love too Much (my first self help book) by Robin Norwood, back in the 1980s. I met Ms Norwood many years ago at an event. I remember she struck me as being really charismatic and she really did stand out from the crowd. I am glad I was able to thank her for a book that started me on the road to self discovery.
