100% recommend. It’s changed the way my sessions go. I am able to regulate and contain big energy and aggression. No more accidental injuries from clients, no more broken toys, clients are not leaving sessions significantly dysregulated. -Elizabeth Ann
Julie Richards –
Such an insightful and powerful perspective on aggression, regulating and dual awareness of the client and therapist in session. I love Lisa’s work!! Julie Richards
An excellent book! Lisa takes the seeming complexity of the interpersonal neurobiology field and applies it directly to work with children. The book is easy to understand and digest and makes the leap to application easy. A must read for anyone who works with children. – Suzanne
