Homelessness & Family Trauma: The Case for Early Intervention
This is the May 2003 newsletter Healing Hands, Vol. 7, No. 2, a publication of Health Care for the Homeless Clinician’s Network, National Health Care for the Homeless Council. This issue focuses on the impact that homelessness has on children, especially for those who have experienced sexual, physical and/or emotional abuse or are in environments where this abuse is occurring. The issue addresses the need for early intervention and provides clinicians with tips on identifying signs of trauma in homeless children as well as when and how to intervene.
