✏Working with Trauma Exposed Children and Adolescents Book Summary : Far too often, children and youth experience trauma, from rare events such as mass shootings, terrorism attacks, and school lockdowns, to very common occurrences such as bullying, exposure to drugs and alcohol, or various mental health issues. They can experience these events both directly and indirectly (from surfing the internet, watching television, or through their friends). Our children spend a large portion of their day at school interacting with other students, teachers, and school personnel, where these topics are raised and discussed. This edited volume addresses how our teachers and school personnel can help students deal with these potentially traumatic events to reach the most positive possible outcomes. This collection brings together leading experts, including academics and professionals working in the field, to provide the most current evidence-based practices on how to help students who may have experienced or witnessed trauma. It presents research and advice on how to respond to traumatic events regarding bullying; drugs and alcohol; sexual abuse; mental health; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) safety; stranger danger; childhood disruptive behaviors; school shootings and lockdowns; and terrorism. It also includes a chapter focused on how to implement a school safety program. Schools cannot deal with these issues alone; effective strategies must engage family members and the broader community. Hence, the collection includes a chapter on how schools can partner with families and the communities they reside in to bring about positive change. All this work pays close attention to cultural and religious sensitivity, socio-economic variabilities, diversity issues, and developmental stages.

✏Child Rights Education for Participation and Development Book Summary : The aims of child rights education are to make children and their primary duty-bearers aware of child rights so that they both can be empowered to together advocate for and apply them at their family, school and community levels. This sourcebook focuses on child rights education for primary prevention with reference to participation and development. The introductory chapter covers child rights values of peace, dignity, tolerance, freedom, equality and justice and child rights principles of dignity of the child, primary consideration to the best interests of the child, universality and non-discrimination, and state and societal accountability. Child rights to participation focuses on child rights for playing a decisive and responsible role in their own life and a participatory role in the family, schools, associations, community and with the state as citizens. Child rights to development includes child rights to free, compulsory, comprehensive and quality education, free of discrimination and violence; child rights to play, recreational, cultural, and artistic activities and media literacy; child rights to health with reference to physical health and hygiene, healthy and hygienic food and nutrition, sexual health and prevention of substance abuse; and child rights to environmental education with reference to child rights to environmental harmony and hygiene and child rights to sustainable environment. This is a must-read for researchers, trainers, and other professionals working on child rights issues across the world, and especially in developing countries.
