This is an invaluable resource that provides educators and caregivers with ideas and strategies to positively influence trauma and stress affected children.
A young child's brain is uniquely sensitive to the effects of stress and trauma, which can have detrimental, long-term developmental impact.
Helping Them Heal explains how trauma affects the developing brain, how those changes can manifest in the classroom, and what teachers and caregivers can do to help a stressed, abused, or neglected child.
Author and professor of early childhood development, Karen Peterson, provides early childhood educators with answers, ideas, and specific classroom strategies to move trauma-affected children in positive directions.
Early childhood educators will learn ways to help children build resilience, self-regulation, and self-competence using this sensitive, supportive, and practical guide.
