Everyone MUST READ Dr. Gord Neufeld

Dr. Gord Neufeld is a psychologist from British Columbia who has powerful ideas about attachment, the relationships that a child has with his/her parents. He talks about how attachment can be superficial, or deep, and about how children attach to parents. In our modern Western society however, many things have intervened which prevent children from deeply attaching to parents. As a result, we are seeing an unprecedented way of problems in our children related to this, such as anxiety, attention problems, aggression, and peer orientation (whereby children no longer value parents and adults as their source of guidance but rather turn to other children/youth as sources of guidance).

I am finding his ideas incredibly powerful and useful for most clinical situations. To learn more, visit his website http://www.gordneufeld.com!
