Trauma in childhood is a grave psychosocial, medical, and public policy problem that has serious consequences for victims and for society.

This association builds, strengthens and empowers networks to improve the lives of children.

Alliance for Childhood welcomed EMDR Europe’s paper on Covid-19 as an educational emergency and shared this resource with all their members and on social media:
