Hope and Healing: A Caregiver's Guide to Helping Young Children Affected by Trauma
by Kathleen Fitzgerald Rice and Betsy Groves McAlister

Book Description
Hope and Healing is an information and resource guide designed for early childhood professionals who care for children in a variety of early care and education settings.  It was developed by the Child Witness to Violence Project at Boston Medical Center in collaboration with the Early Trauma Treatment Network, a national consortium of programs under the auspices of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, and funded by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA), US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The book was written in response to questions received from early childhood professionals from both urban and rural communities about children and trauma.  The goal of this guide is to give these professionals who work directly with young children affected by trauma the information they need to plan and implement successful intervention strategies for children and their families.  The intervention strategies in Hope and Healing follow the developmentally appropriate practice guidelines for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in group care that are outlined by the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and ZERO TO THREE: National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families.

Hope and Healing:

    * Defines trauma;
    * Describes trauma's effects on young children, ages birth to 5 years;
    * Suggests ways in which early care and education professionals can help children and support families;
    * Identifies local and national resources for professionals; and
    * Offers guidance to professionals on managing the stress of working with traumatized children.

This is the latest book that I've added to my collection of helping children through trauma they have experienced...

It's quite short (58 pages), so it's a very easy read, but very informative.  

It is specifically for children "Zero to Three", but I think much of the information is good for all children, no matter the age.  

If you get a chance to read it, please post here with comments!
