What would a genuinely supportive school day look like in real practice, for children who have experienced attachment difficulties and developmental vulnerability? What are the core features of an attachment-friendly school? How can we promote inclusion and positively affect learning outcomes amongst pupils in need, at risk, in care and adopted? Loiuse Bomber, teacher, therapist, trainer and author of the critically acclaimed number one selling book on behavioural difficulties Inside I'm Hurting, draws on her extensive experience in working with these children and young people. The book is full of practical ideas that can easily be integrated into the busy-ness of everyday school life. Complicated methods and procedures are unnecessary - the good news is that genuine relationship will provide children and adolescents who have experienced relational traumas and losses with the core support they need.
