Introduction to a Special Issue on Research with Youth Exposed to Disasters and Violence
This issue of the Child and Youth Care Forum presents six papers on research with youth exposed to disasters and violence. The International Work Group on Treatment Interventions for Children Exposed to War and Violence sponsored by the Stanford Early Life Stress Research Program (held at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies May 5–May 9, 2012) was the impetus for this special issue and highlighted that researchers have often learned a great deal from initial mistakes or from discovering unforeseen paths leading to success. The purpose of this special issue is to bring together a set of papers that explore some of these methodological issues and the limitations inherent in this work and thereby advance the next generation of research across multiple levels of analysis. Clinicians and trauma researchers share the goal of increasing resilience and positive outcomes in individuals exposed to disaster or violence and so papers in the issue also have as a
