Finally! A publication that emphasizes child development AND compassion for parents under stress. But REALLY, SAMHSA, did you have to mention methadone ONLY in the context of abuse, at the end?????? How about the comprehensive care mothers and parents get when opioid addiction is well treated in a good methadone program? We need your help in re-inforcing the value of methaodne treatment (with MANDATED comprehensive care- unlike Suboxone in Doctor's office) to communiy organizations that could make appropriate referrals or ask us for the help and education we would like to provide. They need to hear it from YOU!

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it strange that the appendix on screening tools does not include anything for infants and toddlers?

I think this publication is going to become a handbook for many professionals and community groups that work with stressed populations. . .Uses current brain research but in a very readable way. And the emphasis on parents as human beings with their own struggles--instead of the scapegoating way parents are often treated in these types of publications--is fantastic.

This guide makes complex issues on brain development and trauma easy to understand and gives useful tools for all sorts of agencies and groups. I wish SAMHSA had used a better design, tho. The photos look about 30 years old--they just don't go with the freshness of the text.
