What does a harmed child look like? Itís the little girl on the playground who has mysterious bruises on her legs. Itís the three-month-old baby boy who arches his back when you try to hold him. Itís the four-year-old who bites and hits when asked to clean up. These are the faces of traumatized children. As an early childhood professional, you play a key role in the early identification of maltreatment and unhealthy patterns of development. You are also the gateway to healing. In Reaching and Teaching Children Exposed to Trauma, you will find the tools and strategies to connect with harmed children and start them on the path to healing. Dr. Sorrels offers practical strategies that caregivers need to help these littlest victims.

Review Highlights:

Reaching and Teaching Children Exposed to Trauma is essential for any early childhood educator. This book aims to inform the reader on how to identify specific behaviour patterns of development that may be unhealthy for the child. Chapters cover topics such as stress response and fear based behavior, the effect of trauma on relationships, self-regulation, social skills, sensory processing and the developmental process of learning. Dr. Barabara Sorrels then offers a way in which to approach teaching a child that demonstrates one or more of these behaviours. She offers insight into the play-based curriculum, drama, art, science and math in the classroom.

As an educator for nearly 20 years, I've observed behaviours like many mentioned this extraordinary book but could never really put the finger on them. I intend to spend many more hours digging into Dr. Sorrels book to deepen my analytical skills within the context of early childhood development and human development in general.
