Summary

Acknowledging, understanding, and dealing with childhood trauma is extremely important. Many children suffer from childhood traumas, such as child abuse and neglect, homelessness, and food insecurity. Childhood trauma shapes the adults children eventually become and encodes into their future whether they will be strong and confident adults ready to handle tomorrow's challenges or they are at risk for becoming fearful and anxious individuals. 

The Encyclopedia of Childhood Trauma concentrates on multiple aspects of childhood trauma of concern to our society, such as adverse childhood experiences and their lifelong effects, school and community violence, and the psychiatric problems stemming from childhood trauma. This encyclopedia highlights major problems with the outcomes of children and adults harmed by childhood trauma, how adults and health professionals can recognize signs of trauma, and how children can be treated to cope with serious problems caused by trauma.

Articles include:

  • adverse childhood experiences
  • bullying and cyberbullying
  • child physical abuse
  • childhood neglect
  • emotional abuse and neglect
  • Kaiser Adverse Child Experiences (ACE) study
  • posttraumatic stress disorder
  • school shootings
  • shaken baby syndrome
  • trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy
