Abstract:

This book takes a theoretically exciting and socially critical view of human development and the power of context to shape positive outcomes. The editors bring together leading social scientists to discuss what helps or hinders healthy development. A transformative theme--from deficits to strengths--emerges in this book, as it surveys the mounting evidence that programs that shore up resilience can and do work. Empirically rich chapters show how children, youth, families, and communities can be vital resources in countering the challenges posed by violence, abuse, neglect, and other obstacles to development. It provides concrete examples of programs that recognize, strengthen, and marshal the abilities of individuals and groups traditionally assumed to be deficient or in need of "fixing". This book also extends the scientific findings to real-world program and policy implications. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved).
