Abstract
A book for social workers, therapists, and parents who strive to assist poorly attached children. This work is a narrative, composite case study of the developmental course of one child following years of abuse and neglect. Demonstrating both the specialized psychotherapy and parenting that are often necessary in facilitating a child's psychological development and attachment security, this updated study blends attachment theory, research, and trauma theory with general principles of parenting and family therapy to develop a solid model for intervention. Building the Bonds of Attachment provides a practical guide for all adults-whether professionals or parents-who endeavor to help high-risk youth.

Abstract
Based on personal experience and interviews conducted with 60 other multiracial families, the author has combined anecdotal research with a strong knowledge of childhood and educational development philosophy to provide this useful guide for raising multiracial children in a color- and race-conscious world. The author believes that, although most three-year-olds are not racially aware, it is important to deflect insensitive comments from strangers about appearance. As a child grows older, this early dialogue should deepen, so that children will feel safe and comfortable discussing their racial identity with parents and be able to bring up any racially charged experiences that have occurred at school or with friends. Included are suggestions for the special problems that may arise during adolescence.
