Today’s children face a multitude of pressures, from the everyday challenges of life to the increasing threats of poverty, exploitation, and trauma. Central to growing up successfully is learning to deal with stress, endure hardships, and thrive despite adversity. Resilience – the ability to cope with and overcome life’s difficulties – is a quality that can potentially be nurtured in all young people. The second edition of the Handbook of Resilience in Children updates and expands on its original focus of resilience in children who overcome adversity to include its development in those not considered at risk, leading to better outcomes for all children across the lifespan. Expert contributors examine resilience in relation to environmental stressors, as a phenomenon in child and adolescent disorders, and as a means toward positive adaptation into adulthood. New and revised chapters explore strategies for developing resilience in the family, the therapist’s office, and the school as well as its nurturance in caregivers and teachers. Topics addressed include: Resilience in maltreated children and adults. Resilience and self-control impairment. Relational resilience in young and adolescent girls. Asset-building as an essential component of treatment. Assessment of social and emotional competencies related to resilience. Building resilience through school bullying prevention programs. Large-scale longitudinal studies on resilience. The second edition of the Handbook of Resilience in Children is a must-have reference for researchers, clinicians, allied practitioners and professionals, and graduate students in school and clinical psychology, education, pediatrics, psychiatry, social work, school counseling, and public health.

Their frightened, angry faces are grim reminders of the reach of war. They are millions of children, orphaned, displaced, forced to flee or to fight. And just as they have myriad possibilities for trauma, their lives also hold great potential for recovery. The Handbook of Resilience in Children of War explores these critical phenomena at the theoretical, research, and treatment levels, beginning with the psychosocial effects of exposure to war. Narratives of young people's lives in war zones as diverse as Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Columbia, and Sudan reveal the complexities of their experiences and the meanings they attach to them, providing valuable keys to their rehabilitation. Other chapters identify strengths and limitations of current interventions, and of constructs of resilience as applied to youth affected by war. Throughout this cutting-edge volume, the emphasis is on improving the field through more relevant research and accurate, evidence-based interventions, in such areas as: An ecological resilience approach to promoting mental health in children of war. Child soldiers and the myth of the ticking time bomb. The Child Friendly Spaces postwar intervention program. The role of education for war-zone immigrant and refugee students. Political violence, identity, and adjustment in children. The Handbook of Resilience in Children of War is essential reading for researchers, scientist-practitioners, and graduate students in diverse fields including clinical child, school, and developmental psychology; child and adolescent psychiatry; social work; counseling; education; and allied medical and public health disciplines.

This is the first book to move beyond childhood and adolescence to explore resilience across the lifespan. Coverage ranges from genetic and physiological factors through personal, family, organizational, and community processes.

The Handbook For Working With Children & Youth: Pathways To Resilience Across Cultures and Contexts examines lives lived well despite adversity. Calling upon some of the most progressive thinkers in the field, it presents a groundbreaking collection of original writing on the theories, methods of study, and interventions to promote resilience. Unlike other works that have left largely unquestioned their own culture-bound interpretations of the ways children and youth survive and thrive, this volume explores the multiple paths children follow to health and well-being in diverse national and international settings. It demonstrates the connection between social and political health resources and addresses the more immediate concerns of how those who care for children create the physical, emotional, and spiritual environments in which resilience is nurtured.

Das neue Buch von Spiegel-Bestseller-Autorin Sheryl Sandberg: Nach Lean In schreibt sie zusammen mit dem Psychologie-Professor Adam Grant darüber, wie wir Schicksalsschläge überwinden können. »Option A gibt es nicht mehr. Also lasst uns das Beste aus Option B machen. Ich werde immer um Option A trauern. So wie Bono gesungen hat: Die Trauer endet niemals ... aber auch nicht die Liebe.« Die Welt nahm Anteil, als Sheryl Sandbergs Ehemann Dave Goldberg im Frühjahr 2015 plötzlich verstarb. Sie, die erfolgreiche COO von Facebook, und ihre Kinder fielen in ein tiefes Loch, Freude zu empfinden, schien nie mehr möglich zu sein. »Du kannst dich in den Abgrund fallen lassen, der Leere, die dein Herz füllt und deine Lungen, die dein Denken verengt und dir den Atem abschnürt. Oder du kannst versuchen, einen Sinn darin zu finden.« Dabei hat Sheryl Sandberg ihr guter Freund Adam Grant geholfen, der ihr konkrete Anleitung gab, wie Menschen nach niederschmetternden Schicksalsschlägen schrittweise wieder zurück ins Leben finden können. Jeder muss mit Verlusten leben: Wir verlieren Jobs, Ehen zerbrechen, Angehörige sterben. Doch wir können lernen mit persönlichen Katastrophen umzugehen. Gemeinsam mit Adam Grant erzählt Sheryl Sandberg offen von der Trauer um ihren Mann und dem Willen weiterzuleben. Ergänzend zu ihrer eigenen Erfahrung schildert sie neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnissen aus der Resilienzforschung und berichtet von Menschen, die Arbeitslosigkeit und Armut, Scheidung, Krankheit und Verletzungen überstanden haben. Wir alle können resilienter werden. Und wir können anderen im Umgang mit Tragödien helfen, indem wir über Unsagbares sprechen, unsere Partnerschaften für Krisen stärken, sichere und flexible Arbeitsplätze schaffen und unsere Kinder zu eigenständigen Menschen erziehen.

Der bekannte buddhistische Weisheitslehrer verbindet auf einzigartige Weise neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse mit der spirituellen Praxis des Buddhismus. Glück ist kein Zufall, sondern jeder kann es lernen. Matthieu Ricard gibt revolutionäre neue Einblicke in das, was wir als Glück im Leben bezeichnen, und zeigt, wie wir den Geist so verändern können, dass wir tiefes Glück empfinden. Glück entsteht, wissenschaftlich messbar, aus einem inneren Gleichgewicht von Körper und Geist. Es ist das Resultat einer inneren Reifung, die ganz allein von uns abhängt und die wir Tag für Tag verfolgen können. Konkrete Übungen und Meditationsanleitungen am Ende jedes Kapitels weisen einen klaren Weg zu einem glücklicheren Leben. Das Vorwort schrieb Daniel Goleman, Autor der Bestseller "Emotionale Intelligenz" und "Die heilende Kraft der Gefühle".

This book is a psychoanalytic discussion of the effects of trauma and torture on children, with a specific focus on how professionals can use an approach focused on resiliency rather than vulnerability to help the child reach wellbeing.Aida Alayarian argues that in a world where the torture, maltreatment, and neglect of children shamefully persist, it is incumbent upon all of us to intervene appropriately to put a stop to it. Whether in conference rooms developing a more comprehensive policy to hold perpetrators accountable, or working in clinics where traumatised children and their families seek help, the question of how we act to improve the opportunity for recovery in children and young people subjected to such inhumane treatment should be our primary concern. Handbook of Working with Children, Trauma, and Resilience discusses this salient issue, drawing on psychoanalytic perspectives of the effects of trauma on children, and looking specifically at the case of refugee children and families. Understanding challenging behaviour in traumatised children and the effects of refugee experience on families can help all concerned to offer more appropriate and effective support. Through the presentation of case studies, this work traces the complexity of individual refugee experience while demonstrating the impact of good practice underpinned by an intercultural, resilience-focused approach. In an effort to eradicate torture and maltreatment of children globally, the author points to the necessity of developing appropriate methods of intervention as a responsibility to the children and families we serve and our societies as a whole.

Many children's behavioral problems have multiple causes, and most children with one problem behavior also have others. The co-occurence and interrelatedness of risk factors and problem behavior is certainly an important area of research. This volume recognizes the complexity of the developmental processes that influence coping and resilience and the roles sociocultural factors play. The contributors focus on four themes that have emerged in the study of risk and coping over the past decade: interrelatedness of risk and problems, individual variability in resilience and susceptibility to stress, processes and mechanisms linking multiple stressors to multiple outcomes, and interventions and prevention. Psychologists, pediatricians, and others involved in the research or care of children will take great interest in this text.

More than two decades after Michael Rutter (1987) published his summary of protective processes associated with resilience, researchers continue to report definitional ambiguity in how to define and operationalize positive development under adversity. The problem has been partially the result of a dominant view of resilience as something individuals have, rather than as a process that families, schools,communities and governments facilitate. Because resilience is related to the presence of social risk factors, there is a need for an ecological interpretation of the construct that acknowledges the importance of people’s interactions with their environments. The Social Ecology of Resilience provides evidence for this ecological understanding of resilience in ways that help to resolve both definition and measurement problems.
