Drowning with My Hair on Fire by Ce Eshelman Lmft Review
Relief for Adoptive Parents of Traumatized, Attachment-Challenged Children. . . Drowning with My Hair on Fire is a lifeline for adoptive parents trying to navigate the choppy waters of raising adopted children from difficult beginnings.
Author Ce Eshelman's beautiful heart really shines through in the hundreds of letters to parents to read each day when needing hope, inspiration, advice, direction, reminders, or practical help. She deeply understands them and the chaos of their lives and families because she was there, but is now able to give them the wisdom culled from reading every book on the subject, attending hundreds of seminars and workshops, years of her own therapy, and fearlessly facing her own mistakes.
If you are raising a traumatized, attachment-challenged child, Ce is the friend you want, and this is the book you need. "Ce is the real deal. She's one of those rare gems who deeply cares about the people she serves. She is willing to freeze frame and blow up her mistakes for you to see so you can avoid the same pitfalls. She then points to the path of secure attachment. The book itself is a secure base you can return to again and again when things get difficult at home." -Jennifer Olden, LMFT, Certified EFT Therapist
I recevied a complimentary copy.
