About the author:

I look at attachment across the life span, the neurobiology of parenting and child development and interventions to help children.

What I want to achieve:

My research may change parents’ or teachers’ perspectives on children with so-called ‘difficult temperaments’ or children who are easily distressed, realizing that these children are the ones that will profit optimally from support and flourish like orchids.
