This collection of 17 essays presents state of the art research on traumatized young children with the aim of raising awareness about the impact of trauma and a stress on intervention. They repeat the particular vulnerability young children have to trauma, as compared to older children and adults, but by the same token their remarkable capacity for recovery. The first two of five sections focuses on trauma's effects on young children, especially on forming socially healthy brains, and then evaluation and treatment models. The third and fourth sections focus on children who come from military families and then on cases involving at-risk children in juvenile courts and families with substance-abuse issues. The last section presents special issues, including children traumatized by natural disasters and the importance of self-care in situations where the vicarious trauma care-providers experience can cause more trouble for traumatized children. The contributors come from pediatrics, clinical and research-oriented psychology, juvenile court-system, social work research, trauma-support groups and the military.
