This book provides a great overview about how we become conditioned by early life experiences, and clearly outlines important treatment principles when working with babies, children and families. It also provides an invaluable resource for health professionals about common denominators that lie behind a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms. A must read! -- Michael Kern, Course Director, Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust, author of Wisdom in the Body
A useful book on child development and interrelations with parents and health personnel. Helpful to understand infant behaviour and thus direct to proper treatment if indicated. -- Zvi Laron * Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol 15, No. 1, September 2017 *
In addition to addressing youngsters themselves, the book also explores the ramifications of these early influences on our adult clients. It provides an up to date and useful reference to anyone interested in the area. -- The Fulcrum, Issue 74, Spring 2018
