‘This book is a peek inside the minds of clinical scientists who are doing cutting-edge research on attachment, compassion, shame, parenting, mindfulness, and positive psychology. The content offered on this cluster of topics is thoroughly satisfying while it inspires readers to pursue their own informed questions.
