Ранние отношения, или Чего хотят младенцы? (2010) (Early Relationships or What Babies Want)
This easy-to-read book is one of a series of projects by HealthProm to reduce the large numbers of babies and small children entering institutions in Russia.
It aims to contribute to reducing those numbers by enabling parents to increase their parenting skills in the hope that some who might have given their children up to institutions will keep and care for them satisfactorily at home.
There is still a lack of information for parents on how to address their children’s psychological and social needs. This book avoids giving instructions but provides information from which parents can draw their own conclusions.
Authors: Tatiana Morozova, child psychologist; and Svyatoslav Dovbnya, paediatrician; Stewart Britten, child psychiatrist; Christine Puckering, clinical psychologist of Mellow Parenting. Edited by Tatiana Morozova and Svyatoslav Dovbnya.
