Getting to the heart of children’s emotional and social development
“Graham Music brings discoveries to life in the context of clinical priorities in a way that no other author has been able to achieve.” – Professor Peter Fonagy, Chief Executive, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, UK.
The first edition of Nurturing Natures quickly established itself as a bestselling and indispensable text about children’s emotional and social development. Spanning prenatal life to adolescence, this second edition uses cutting-edge developmental and neuroscience research to bring alive the issues anyone working with children needs to understand.
Written in an informative, lively and rigorous way by experienced psychotherapist and renowned trainer, Dr. Graham Music, this second edition of Nurturing Natures gets right to the heart of why, and how, children develop as they do.
“These are exciting and heady times for developmental and neurobiological research. Findings are coming through thick and fast which are massively relevant to understanding how children tick and profoundly affect how we work with them.” States the author. “I wanted to convey my excitement about these new developments and ensure the research covering the vast array of topics in the book was relevant and right up-to-date.”
Full of fascinating findings, this new edition unpacks a vast range of complicated child developmental research within one, user-friendly volume and tackles topics such as: the impact of trauma, epigenetics, insecure attachment, adolescent brain, culture, race, moral development and much more.
“Music is the David Attenborough of child development research,” explains Professor Jeremy Holmes, “[he combines] passion for his subject, encyclopaedic knowledge, with crystal-clear communications skills that never succumb to oversimplification.”
Nurturing Natures is a highly accessible and inspiring text. It provides answers to many of the questions people really want to ask about the human journey, from conception into adulthood, and is essential for those looking after, or working, with infants, children and adolescents.
