While there have been great strides made in the treatment options available to trauma victims, there is a noticeable gap in the availability of medical, social, and psychological options in rural communities. As these hurdles gain more recognition, especially in regards to traumatized children, research efforts have been intensified in an effort to increase the overall awareness of and find solutions to the improper treatment being provided.

Identifying, Treating, and Preventing Childhood Trauma in Rural Communities depicts the issues and challenges rural areas face when treating victims of trauma, especially children and adolescents. Featuring information on language and cultural barriers, as well as the lack of resources available within these rustic environments, this publication serves as a critical reference for researchers, clinicians, educators, social workers, and medical providers.
