Book review by Laila Paulsen-Becejac

Janet Rose, Louie Gilbert and Val Richards Sage Publications Ltd £23.99 | 200pp ISBN: 9781446287620

This book is written for professionals working with young children, particularly those in the early years.

It reviews links between attachment and the developing brain, and examines how these links relate to the health and well-being of the young child.

Active learning, emotional coaching, resilience and building learning are discussed, with reference to the development of the young child and the child's health and well-being.

External factors are also explored, before the book covers the interventions available to professionals, including nurses and health visitors.

Overall, the book is an easy read and draws on current research. It would be a useful resource for nurses working with young children.

Laila Paulsen-Becejac is a senior lecturer in child health nursing at the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare, University of West London
