Osofsky, Joy D., Ed.; Fenichel, Emily, Ed.
Zero to Three, v13 n3 Dec 93-Jan 94
This journal issue is a contribution to the development of caretaking strategies to help young victims of violence, and is intended to provide support for those who are helping the victims. Four main articles are: (1) "Parenting in Violent Environments" (Joy Osofsky and Beverly Roberson Jackson); (2) "Infants, Toddlers, and Violence: Developing a Community Response" (J. Ronald Lally and Marilyn M. Segal); (3) "The Assessment and Treatment of Infants and Toddlers Exposed to Violence" (Charles H. Zeanah); and (4) "Call for Violence Prevention and Intervention on Behalf of Very Young Children" (The Zero to Three Study Group). These major articles are supplemented by shorter pieces on helping children channel aggression, early intervention, and community policing, as well as brief case studies and vignettes. The report calls for a family-centered approach to addressing trauma and prevention, a realignment of values, and informed comprehensive public policy strategies for reducing violence. A list of 38 organizational resources, along with a list of contributors and the members of the Violence Study Group, are included. Contains 152 references. (MDM)
