Healing Parents: Helping Wounded Children Learn to Trust & Love Attachment is the deep connection that children and parents/caregivers establish early in life. This connection is basic to very aspect of a child’s development affecting emotional and social development as well as the way the brain develops. Unfortunately, insecure attachment and attachment disorders are more common than we realize.

Healing Parents gives parents/caregivers the information, tools, support, self-awareness, and hope they need to help a wounded child heal emotional wounds and improve behaviorally, socially, and morally.

This book is a toolbox filled with practical strategies and research that helps parents/caregivers understand their child, learn to respond in a constructive way, and create a healthy environment. Parents/caregivers will learn to develop their child’s positive beliefs and establish trust by emphasizing respect, providing appropriate limits, consistent structure, and being a positive role model.

Based on 60 years of combined experience doing therapy, teaching, consulting, and research related to children and families, Michael Orlans, M.A. and , Ph.D. have created a guide designed to provide parents/caregivers of wounded children the information and skills necessary to create a healing environment.
