Industry Reviews

"Susan Hart has unified her brilliant and compelling command of both the objective scientific and the subjective psychotherapeutic aspects of attachment into a cutting-edge synthesis that she calls developmental neuroaffective psychology. In this book Hart makes the often-confusing science of attachment highly accessible to both practitioner and researcher. The book's contents are well balanced with a refreshingly adequate portion dedicated to translating theory into principles for treatment." -- Babette Rothschild, MSW, bestselling author of The Body Remembers
"Recommended." -- CHOICE
"The Impact of Attachment, the title of Susan Hart's book, says it all. This book of rigorous science and heartfelt clinical brilliance provides a clear neuro-developmental map of how to understand the power and intricacies of our first experiences in life, and how they set a template upon which all later experiences are built. She also helps us to address some of the most important topics in society-how we teach hate and how we can teach love and respect. This book speaks not only to clinicians, but to educators and parents who wish to deeply understand and positively influence their children. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach with Susan and to learn from her. She is a bright star and a clear author; she is able to distill complex theories and research into readily understandable concepts." -- Peter A Levine, PhD, author of Trauma through a Child's Eyes
