This book is a collection of smaller stories collected from the notes of Child psychiatrist Bruce D Perry. When we first started the process of becoming licensed foster parents another parent posted about this book on a fostering group. I had a long run coming up so I found it on audiobook and started running. I didn’t want it to end and extended the run just to continue listening. This is a book that one could benefit from at any level of experience. What I took away from it at this point is the importance of attachment and meeting a child where they are at, not where you think they should be. As I gain in experience this is a book I will go back to for further insight into the children we have in our home.
