Summary

First published 1999, this book attempts to answer these questions and takes a broad approach to the subject of "Childhood and Trauma". It examines in detail separation, sexual abuse and war, all of which are particularly traumatizing to children, and how they are dealt with in different cultures. In addition to describing the causes and impacts of trauma, the book also gives special attention to healing and helping traumatized children. One chapter deals solely with how to support professional caregivers who live and work with affected children. Another aim of the book is to use the practical experience of SOS Children’s Villages to illustrate the possibilities and limits of professional care and therapy for traumatized children. The Book comprises a total of 17 articles provided by authors from eight different countries and pursues both a practical and theoretical approach to the problems mentioned above. "Children and Trauma" is intended for psychologists, psychotherapists, educators, social workers as well as a broader audience of professional caregivers and anyone interested in the subject.
