What works in building resilience?
Price : £11.99
This book focuses on the assets of children and families, rather than their problems, and moves beyond simply reviewing theoretical research to examining the interventions that actively promote resilience.
Children's psycho-social health has deteriorated in recent decades, while child welfare services have become increasingly directed towards risk. The book asks: - What is resilience and why is it important? - Why do some children overcome stressful episodes? - How can welfare services cultivate resilience in children and young people? What works in building resilience? expands on the author's earlier paper Promoting Resilience (2002), produced for the University of Exeter's Centre for Evidence Based Social Services. The What works? series reviews key evidence and its applications to child care practice in a range of areas.
