In his book, Brain-Based Parenting, world-renowned attachment therapist Dr. Daniel Hughes talks about the brain mechanisms behind healthy caregiving. A must read for all parents (and therapists!) For more information, http://books.google.ca/books?id=EfED7he8NasC&source=gbs_similarbooks
In his new book, Whole-Brain Child, Dr. Siegel has written an excellent book which talks about the best ways to parent a child, based on modern brain research. What is wonderful at the same time, is that these strategies are consistent with an attachment-based approach to parenting, as opposed to purely behavioural based parenting.
