It was a treat to read The Little Book of Attachment by Daniel Hughes and Ben Gurney-Smith! A truly systemic and relational approach, this book describes how therapists can create safety, understand and get to know their clients, and create an environment of collaboration in which parents and children can co-regulate and synchronize their experiences with positive outcomes. Lovely, grounded, useful book!--Eliana Gil, PhD, RPT-S, Senior Clinical and Research Consultant at Gil Institute for Trauma Recovery and Education, Fairfax, VA
