This handbook gathers into one volume the current scientific theory, clinical guidelines, and real-world interventions that can help children overcome the everyday obstacles they face. It includes a wide range of perspectives addressing the role of resilience in helping children overcome these obstacles. The book provides guidance on how to measure and evaluate resilience in clinical practice, and it emphasizes the importance of resilience – positive psychology – rather than pathologies. In addition, the book features contributions from leading experts from a variety of fields, such as psychology, education, and social work.
