Beschreibung

Childhood is ideally a time of safety, marked by freedom from the economic, sexual, and political demands that later become part of adult life. For many children, however, particularly those who live in our inner cities, childhood is increasingly a time of danger. In the urban war zones of Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., children grow up with firsthand knowledge of terror and violence. This book examines the threat to childhood development posed by living amid chronic community violence. Most importantly, it shows caregiving adults such as teachers, psychologists, social workers, and counselors how they can work together to help children while they are still children--before they become angry, aggressive adults.

Pressestimmen

"Children in Danger is a triumph of compassionate scholarship, a lucid application of state-of-the-art trauma research to the challenges faced by children growing up in our urban battle fields." --San Francisco Chronicle"A stunning, must-read book for anyone interested in how community violence affects children's and teacher's development. Even better, it's a road map for school administrators and teachers on what they can do to help these children deal with the chronic violence in their lives." --Bill Harris, founder, KidsPac, a political action committee for children"This valuable book offers insight and guidance to the professional who must help children cope with the cruel challenge of violence and death in their daily lives." --Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University"[Children in Danger] is such a compelling account of the ways in which children are affected by living in communities where danger and violence are a way of life, that one hopes it will be read by policymakers at all levels of government who are concerned about the fate of an ever-growing number of children in our society." --Contemporary Psychology
