Helping them Heal
How Teachers Can Support Young Children Who Experience Stress and Trauma
by Karen Peterson, PhD
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. Helping Them Heal 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.
