Description

Many times children who have experienced trauma are very difficult to teach. They struggle in our educational system to really engage and to feel safe enough to build relationships with adults and their peers.

There are many books out there on Attachment Theory and some very good books on education. However some are quite cumbersome to read. This book is an entry level into Attachment. With the personal experiences of the author, as an adoptive Mum and trainer, the theory is made practical in a way that engages the reader.

This book covers areas such as:

  • Attachment theory
  • Brain development
  • Symptoms of Attachment
  • Areas of concern i.e. shame, control, identity, memory issues and trust
  • Many strategies for how to reach these children

A fellow ‘forever mum’ and professional in the field of training said of the book:-

“Nicola draws on her own experience of adopting Fruit Bat 1,2 & 3 (her names for them) and has created a clear, readable and practical guide to help others better understand the vulnerable children they live or work with. It’s an ideal, ‘must read’ resource for teachers and other professionals working with challenging and troubled pupils and is made all the more powerful because it draws not only on the best theory and expert advice available but on her own real life knowledge”.
