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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this is a unique work that provides a comprehensive overview of the research accomplished to date on stress, coping, and resilience in children and provides a foundation for pediatric psychologists as they attempt to understand the unique stressors associated with illness, disease, and other adversities that children are compelled to endure. The book is required reading for any pediatric psychologist or scholar who is interested in a program of research on stress, coping, and resilience." Ronald Brown and Joan E. Donegan, Journal of Pediatrics
