Internationally renowned therapist and educator, the late Dr. Sandra Wieland, skillfully weaves the science of how the brain works with parenting and effective approaches for professionals to help shift the way parents are with their children.

Child therapist, Sandra Baita, contributes an extra chapter that elucidates key information to help foster and adoptive parents and social services workers tackle difficult child behaviours. Examples of conversational strategies are embedded throughout this book, with explanations of the foundational elements, relating back to the brain science, behind each strategy.
