You can find plenty of people online who say they have tried it and didn't like it. But the funny thing is, all their reasoning against it has to do with their own fears. I've had people tell me that "there is no way love can heal what is broken in my child." Well, you know what? With an attitude like that, I don't doubt that you are right.
Heather Forbes' work takes work. It is difficult and time-consuming and involves taking a deep look at your own self. Many people give up on it because they think it is asking too much of them. My response would be that nothing is too much to ask of us in helping to lead our children to healing. Nothing.
I could write volumes on what I have experienced in parenting a child with RAD and PTSD. All of the successes I have had are mainly because of using the BCLC method. Not only does it make sense from a practical standpoint, she also has science to back her up! Children who have experienced trauma and neglect have different brains. Science shows us this. I've seen my own daughter's MRIs and CAT scans -- trauma and neglect atrophies a growing brain. It leaves scars. Heather's methods are healing children the world over. Do yourself a favor and read her books. I have recommended them to every person I know parenting a hurt child, as well as to social workers and therapists who come in contact with kids like mine.
