Daniel A. Hughes, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who specializes in child abuse and neglect, attachment, foster care, and adoption. He actively trains other therapists in the model of treatment known as Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, both within the United States and in other countries.
"I use this book for a course I teach on Child Treatment in our MSW program. I also recommend the book to all of my master students in their advanced practice course with individuals and groups. One of the tremendous strengths of the book is its underlying ability to help guide the reader through the critical thinking process. What constitutes abuse and neglect? What are the far-reaching consequences of profound emotional and physical neglect? How does one evaluate attachment therapy? Is this working? The use of the storytelling places the critical thinking within a unique context and helps guide developing practitioners to a better understanding of very difficult principles. No matter the expertise of the reader, there is something to learn in this text, which makes the book highly valuable over time. I encourage my students to read the book at different stages of their career to maximize their understanding of attachment and the dyadic developmental psychotherapy." -- Victoria A. Fitton, Michigan State University "Katie's story triggers strong emotions from graduate students. My students cannot wait for the next chapter and often read ahead." -- Mark Beischel, Peru State College "The 'Katie book', as it is fondly called by those who have read it over the years, has captured the hearts of many people. Dan masterfully uses the story of Katie to explain and illustrate the DDP model and how it is applied both in parenting and therapy. Now, in this 3rd edition, Dan has brought the story up-to-date with new thinking and discoveries he has made in the intervening time. The ideas of blocked trust and blocked care are here illustrated in a way which conveys understanding and compassion for the children and parents affected by these difficulties. Many of us, who have known our own 'Katie's' and struggled with the challenges that they present, will draw hope and inspiration from this updated edition of Building the Bonds of Attachment.'" -- Kim S. Golding, author of Nurturing Attachments: Supporting Children Who Are Fostered or Adopted -- Kim Golding
