Summary

Hope for Children of Trauma: An International Perspective synthesizes all the existing evidence, policy and practice from around the world for children and youth who have experienced different forms of complex trauma – such as abuse, neglect and war violence – and also presents a real advance in the literature, by covering new material from the author’s extensive visits and collaborations in low and middle-income countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The book covers a historical and research overview of developments in trauma and child mental health, global policy and evidence on the impact of trauma on child mental health. In particular, this book communicates real experiences through narratives and supporting photographic material from children in slum areas, orphanages or on the streets, and explores the application of therapeutic approaches by frontline practitioners, therapeutic interventions, service development and training programmes.

Integrating testimonies, observations, therapeutic interventions and research findings, Hope for Children of Trauma shows how these problems can be addressed, and will be thought-provoking reading for child and adolescent mental health practitioners, NGOs and policy-makers.
