Following an introduction, the book is divided into nine chapters: (1) Attachment Theory and Preschool Separations; (2) Starting at Home; (3) Preparing for Separation; (4) The Adventure Begins; (5) Separation Takes Time; (6) Going Home: Another Separation; (7) Uneasy Separations; (8) Partnering in Children's Separation; and (9) Closure and Moving On.
