Reparenting the Child Who Hurts equips parents and primary carers with the knowledge and skills to be able to respond to children's changing needs as they move through childhood. In clear, approachable language, it explains the impact of early trauma on the neuro-biological development of children, and provides clear guidance for foster and adoptive parents.

By using simple visual metaphors, Caroline Archer and Christine Gordon explain neurobiological processes in terms that are easily understood and remembered: of building a house (with the brain having 'storeys'), and of reparenting techniques being similar to the process of knitting. Within the second metaphor, they explain how we learn how to parent according to the 'patterns' we have inherited, and how children who have experienced early trauma and developed the 'wrong patterns' need careful 're-stitching'. This book aims to provide parents and carers with a full understanding of the issues behind children's behaviour, and in doing so to become better 'regulators' of their own and their children's physiological and emotional environments. This book will be an invaluable resource for foster and adoptive parents, and will also be of interest to counsellors and social workers working with substitute families.
