John Stewart's new work is an excellent endeavor to describe the complex qualities that are central in developing and maintaining a milieu that provides young people with the relationships that they need to begin to trust. -- From the foreword by Dan Hughes, psychologist and founder of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy
In Attachment-Based Milieus, John Stewart shares his original and practical approach to utilize relationship based approaches to healing. In a clear and well-written way, he provides us with the tools to leverage our Paleolithic tribal instincts in the service of plasticity and positive change -- Louis Cozolino PhD, Professor of Psychology, Pepperdine University
John Stewart has given us a gift. This book expands our use of attachment theory and provides a road map for institutions to travel on towards more secure base milieu care. -- Guy Diamond, Director, Center for Family Intervention Science, Drexel University, Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania
