In Horror and Its Aftermath: Reconsidering Theology and Human Experience, Sally Stamper brings together psychoanalytic theory, early childhood development, and theological recourse to psychology into a fresh conversation about human suffering and the contingencies of human existence before God. She argues that a constant awareness of vulnerability to profound suffering shapes and inflects human experience and that insight into the consequent human anxiety is a powerful resource for theological reflection on sin, grace, salvation, and redemption. Stamper narrates what she calls “normative anxiety” by taking recourse to object relations theories of early childhood development and critical readings of literary texts for young children, including Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and Dr. Seuss’ “What Was I Scared Of?” Building on Marilyn McCord Adams’s treatment of horror-participation and Jonathan Lear’s argument for radical hope, Stamper develops a complex argument that gestures toward a new eschatological vision centered on a transcendent God who is both radically other and intimately engaged in human life.

In this much-needed text, the author provides dilemma-based teaching cases that teachers and early childhood leaders can analyze and discuss to build problem-solving and decision-making skills. Readers will reflect on challenges they are likely to experience in practice, addressing issues such as linguistically and culturally isolated children, children refusing to share with others, high-energy children struggling to develop self-regulation and executive function, and children experiencing trauma. They will also examine issues related to inadequate resources and teacher compensation. Each case portrays early childhood practitioners as they transform challenging scenarios into opportunities for the growth of social and emotional skills. This one-of-a-kind resource can be used for professional development, for courses that address the emotional and social development of young children, and with students beginning their supervised field experience to help bridge their research and practice. “This excellent book . . . demonstrates the growth of the whole child, using well-written, research-based portrayals of teachers and leaders displaying emotional intelligence and fostering its growth in children, teachers, and leaders.” —From the Foreword by Edward F. Zigler, The Edward Zigler Center in Child Development and Social Policy “This important book emphasizes that the first thing children need is to know they are loved, the second is to learn self-regulation, and the third is to know how to get along with others. Peggy Pizzo’s book shows teachers how they can help children learn these things and thrive.” —T. Berry Brazelton, professor emeritus, Harvard Medical School and founder of Brazelton Touchpoints Center “As a long-time admirer of Peggy Pizzo and her seminal work, I am delighted that she is bringing an innovative approach—using teaching cases—to early childhood professional development in ways designed to help children learn and grow.” —Ellen Galinsky, president, Families and Work Institute

A central theme of this book is the gradual process of separation between parents and toddlers and the growth of autonomy in them all. Jenny Stoker has written with clarity, sympathy and warmth about the multiple problems children face in their toddler years and she has addressed the parents with immense empathy. Stoker manages to convey complex concepts and arguments in a lucid and simple style that all readers will find most helpful.'Each of the authors featured has published papers and books for the academic and clinical communities; the present volumes, however, are specifically aimed at parents. The intent is not to convince but to inform the reader. Rather than offering solutions, we are describing, explaining and discussing the problems that parents meet while bringing up their children, from infancy through to adulthood.'We try to provide portraits of the various stages in the child's cognitive, intellectual, and emotional development and how these unfolding stages affect not only the child's experience of himself, but also how he perceives and relates to the world in which he lives. Our hope is that establishing this context will help the parents who read these books to see their child from a different perspective.'- Dr. A. H. Brafman, from his Series Editor's Foreword

What makes children in their 'terrible twos' behave as they do? How can parents decide when their child is ready for day care, and manage their child's transition to a trusted child minder? Lisa Miller guides parents through their two-year-old's development, from how to deal with a 'bossy boots' to understanding the central importance of toys, and the development of language and nonverbal communicative skills. She describes ways in which parents can help a young child express or resolve difficult feelings or jealousy, come to accept and welcome a new-born sibling, and negotiate friendships.
