Abstract:

"This book engages with a wide spectrum of questions and topics related to children's, adolescents' and families' difficulties, as well as to epistemological, meta-theoretical, taxonomical, and intervention issues. Particular emphasis is given throughout the book to discussing and suggesting various alternative methods and practices of promoting the potential and capacity of children, families, and schools to deal with various personal and contextual risks and adversities. Most of the contributions brought together in this volume highlight the psychosocial and community and especially school-based and child-centered paradigm focusing not only on the treatment of children's deficits, but mainly, and above all, on strengthening and sharpening their social, emotional and learning skills and on promoting child, family, and social-school resources and resilience. Integrating various innovative or traditional techniques in a wider psychosocial and resilient inclusive perspective is one of the most promising approaches to childhood disorder and disability. This book presents these fundamentally important issues within the context of up-to-date research on vulnerability and resilience that helps strengthen family and child-school relationships, and will enable professionals, teachers, and parents to deal with a plethora of difficulties and risks in childhood and adolescence."--Publisher's website.
