Overview

This volume explores the human capacity for resilience despite the experience of adversity in early life. The book is a celebration of the significant contribution Ann and Alan Clarke have made to the field. Through their empirical and conceptual work they have advanced our understanding of how people overcome the influence of a hostile early environment.

The contributors focus on the factors which enable people to recover from early trauma and stress, and demonstrate how human development is an ongoing process throughout the life course. They draw on theory and practice from fields as diverse as the origins of behavior disorders, recovery from brain injury, curricular development for the learning disabled, and creative ability in older people. This positive volume will inform the practice of professionals working with children who have experience of adversity. It contributes to the advance of the nature-nurture debate, showing how a supportive environment offsets the effects of early adverse experience.
