Resilience and Rebuilding in the COVID-19 Era: Stories From the Field 2021


Volume 41 No 4

Since the last Stories From the Field issue in the summer of 2020, we have experienced a year of traumatic circumstances that have dramatically affected the well-being of babies, families, early childhood professionals, and their systems of care. The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented fear, illness, isolation, loss, and grief. In addition, young children and their families have also been experiencing the direct and indirect impacts of other extended traumas in their communities, including racial injustice and social tensions, natural disasters, and economic stressors. As with any profound challenge, the past year also brought unparalleled opportunities for growth and transformation.
