The US Department of Health and Human Services reports that close to 1 million children a year are identified as victims of maltreatment. In addition, the National Clearinghouse of Child Abuse and Neglect estimates that between 3 and 10 million children a year witness the abuse of a parent or caregiver. In recent years, therapists, educators, and researchers have learned a great deal about children and trauma. Findings suggest that recovery often depends on early childhood professionals who understand children and trauma and have the skills to help children and support families. "Hope and Healing" is a guide for early childhood professionals who care for children in a variety of early care and education settings. The authors define trauma and help readers recognize its effects on young children. They also offer tips and resources for working with traumatized children and their families and for managing stress.
