Increasing numbers of children in our country are exposed to various forms of maltreatment and trauma including physical and emotional neglect and abuse, sexual abuse, divorce and abandonment. These children are often identified as having special needs and most eventually receive the diagnosis of at least one of the following: ADD/ADHD, oppositional defiant, bipolar, obsessive compulsive disorder or depression.
It has been generally assumed that only those with advanced education and clinical skills can help traumatized children, but there is increasing evidence that teachers are a critical part of the process of healing. (Bath, 2008). Dr. Bruce Perry, a leading expert in trauma, recognizes that it is the ongoing, daily interactions with loving, emotionally responsive and caring adults that bring about healing.
