It is now widely accepted that witnessing or experiencing acts of severe interpersonal violence interferes with the mastery of age-appropriate developmental milestones and leaves children at significant risk for conduct disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and depression. In spite of extensive data documenting these risks, there is a dearth of intervention strategies designed to alleviate the effects of exposure to violence in the first 5 years of life.
This practical handbook offers treatment guidelines to address the behavioral and mental health problems of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers whose most intimate relationships are disrupted by the experience of violence. Practitioners from a variety of disciplines will gain an understanding of the impact of violence and will discover concrete intervention strategies to address the consequences of this experience for young children.
