People who have experienced emotional neglect in the first months and years of life suffer negative consequences into adulthood. As adult psychotherapy clients, they require long-term work and delicate emotional attunement as well as a profound understanding of the experiences that have shaped their inner worlds. This book provides therapists with an in-depth view of the subjective experience of such "ignored children" and a range of possible theoretical models to help understand key features of their psychological functioning.

Kathrin A. Stauffer presents dos and don'ts of psychotherapy with such clients. She draws on broad clinical experience to help psychotherapeutic professionals deepen their understanding of "ignored children" and outlines available neurobiological and psychological data to assist therapists in designing effective therapeutic interventions.
