Trauma in the life of children from birth to five years of age has a profound impact which intensifies the need for early identification and intervention.
Young children are either pre-verbal or inexperienced with verbal language and consequently are unable to adequately express their thoughts and feelings or describe threatening life events.
In order to understand a child?s behavior and plan for care and intervention it is necessary for the caregiver, teacher, or health care provider to determine the child?s history and emotional state from other sources. Such knowledge is essential for proceeding effectively.
Particular emphasis is given to a discussion on how caregivers and teachers can intervene to build trust and provide guidance, predictability, and support.
