The Power of Play for Addressing Trauma in the Early Years


ECF has produced another brief on the importance of play for addressing trauma in young children. As the brief states, almost half of children 0-5 experience one or more types of serious trauma in their early years. This brief provides families, teachers, and caregivers an easy to read one-page online brief with tips for helping young children cope.

In addition there is a resource list for more information about early childhood mental health support.
