Overview

Drawing on extensive research and clinical experience, Walsh identifies key processes in resilience for practitioners to target and facilitate. Numerous case illustrations assist the reader in eliciting the unique strengths of diverse families to the benefit of all their members, from small children to frail elderly. Guidelines are delineated for intervening sensitively and effectively with those struggling with sudden crisis, trauma, and loss; disruptive transitions, such as job loss, divorce, and migration; chronic multistress conditions of serious illness or poverty; and barriers to success for at-risk youth.
