This chapter explores the concept of trauma and ways in which social workers can intervene. It discusses definitions of traumatic events and some approaches to assisting people who have experienced a traumatic event. While many professions intervene after traumatic events and provide support for survivors, the contribution of social work is the focus. The impact of traumatic events on children and their development is particularly highlighted. The chapter considers social work intervention along a continuum from individual to community and from a single traumatic event to a large-scale disaster.

Keywords:   traumatic events, social workers, social work practice, social work intervention, children, child development
