Library of articles for caregivers and professionals, as well as educational resources on the subjects of abuse and neglect, attachment, brain development and neuroscience, child development and early childhood, trauma and PTSD, violence and public health and secondary trauma.

Safe Horizon and the Childhood Violent Trauma Center at Yale Child Study Center joined forces to address the needs of children traumatised by abuse.  Working together, the two institutions adapted and implemented a brief, evidence‐based intervention for traumatised children developed by the Childhood Violent Trauma Center at the Yale Child Study Center for implementation at four Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) in New York City.  

This resource explores the needs children in residential child care may have and then offers a range of practical activities for use with children. Examples of young people's concerns are featured and how to achieve the outcomes set out in Every Child Matters is considered.
