How is the child affected by painful, traumatizing experiences at an ealry age? To what extent can such experiences be healed?... The booklet bring the readers the latest information about child development and the importance of environmental and genetic factors. In order to make it useful in a wider context, the main part summarizes established knowledge in the field without particular reference to adoption.
