    Joy Rees brings her practice wisdom, theoretical knowledge and field work experience to give a confidence to those helping children to make sense of their lives.
  • Gillian Thrower, Developmental Trauma and Attachment Therapist

    Yet again Joy Rees has demonstrated her gift of enabling practitioners to help children make sense of their often confusing and painful stories, explaining complex subjects and processes in clear, accessible language.
  • Kim S. Golding, Clinical Psychologist, Worcestershire

    Life Work with Children Who are Fostered or Adopted really challenges us to think about who is holding the history for the child, and how we can pull these pieces together into a coherent story to be visited at intervals throughout the child's life. With clear understanding about why life work needs to be an ongoing process, this book has lots of practical information about a range of ways we can find, hold and share the story with the child.
