Helping Them Heal

How Teachers Can Support Young Children Who Experience Stress and Trauma


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 and how those changes can manifest in the classroom. It provides early childhood educators with answers, ideas, and specific classroom strategies to help move a stressed, abused, or neglected child 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.
