Overview

Now in a fully revised, updated, and expanded second edition, this informative clinical resource and text presents Froma Walsh's family resilience framework for intervention and prevention with clients dealing with adversity. Drawing on extensive research and clinical experience, the author describes key processes in resilience for practitioners to target and facilitate. Useful guidelines and case illustrations address a wide range of challenges: sudden crisis, trauma, and loss; disruptive transitions, such as job loss, divorce, and migration; persistent multistress conditions of serious illness or poverty; and barriers to success for at-risk youth. New chapters present resilience-oriented approaches to recovery from major disasters and demonstrate community-based and international programmatic applications. "The world has changed since the original publication of Strengthening Family Resilience, and this reality is apparent on every page of Froma Walsh's fine second edition of her classic and soon-to-be-classic-again book. Walsh provides a thoughtful integration of theory and practice, principles and questions, leavened with the humility that thinking deeply in such complex times deserves. She has strengthened the new edition with attention to a wider variety of challenging circumstances that families face, and emphasizes collaborative and community-based approaches to assisting families in hard times.
