  1. Nurturing relationships between caring adults and children have the power to heal troubled lives” (Rice & Groves, 2005, p. 18). Based on pages 18–19 of Hope and Healing: A Caregiver’s Guide to Helping Young Children Affected by Trauma and the essay “Respectful Teaching with Infants and Toddlers” from Concepts for Care, identify three strategies that can be used by child development professionals to develop nurturing relationships between adults and children. How can each of the practices you identified contribute to children’s development of resiliency?
  2. Appropriate guidance and socialization strategies support the healthy mental development of all young children. Based on the essay “Socialization and Guidance with Infants and Toddlers” from Concepts for Care and pages 19–23 of Hope and Healing, explain, using examples, how attention to developing and fostering healthy interactions within a respectful environment can both cultivate infant/toddler mental health and foster resilience.
  3. Although children may unfortunately experience many different kinds of trauma, behavioral signs and symptoms of trauma are fairly consistent across children. Strategies supporting the development and learning needs of children who have been traumatized require quality, individualized caring and learning experiences that are in tune with each child’s unique emotional needs (Rice & Groves, 2005). Review pages 24–3 7 of Hope and Healing. Identify and explain two teaching strategies that meet the development and learning needs of all children, including those who are most needy, and two adaptations, or special considerations, that child development professionals may need to be mindful of with children who have been traumatized.
