There has never been a better time to learn about attachment! The astonishing leaps in brain research plus the wider and invaluable sharing of the voices of adoptees, foster care alumni, and the parents who care for them is enlightening us all. The underlying good news: while attachments get disrupted by trauma, neglect, grief and loss, brains can still recover and heal. Please reference our Couples & Caregiving, Early Childhood, Grief and Loss, Parent Care, Single Parenting and Trauma pages for more resources.
