This edition of Early Childhood Matters looks at the effects of community violence on young children. Articles explore the idea that violence shoud be thought of as a public health problem analogous to infectious disease; examine from a scientific perspective the impacts on children's social, emotional and cognitive development of growing up in a violent community; share first-hand insights from children and caregivers; and explore various interventions, from the favelas of Recife to the inner cities of Chicago and Glasgow, which are offering a tangible sense of hope.
