Turning the Corner: From Risk to Resiliency. A Compilation of Articles from the "Western Center News."
This document features a collection of research bulletins on prevention of conditions that place students at risk. The theme is that the focus on at-risk kids should be shifted from prevention to a concentration on creating environments that nurture individual resiliency. Thirteen bulletins offer information on peer programs, collaboration as a catalyst for creative problem solving, the celebration of multiculturalism, protective factors in prevention, the role of school restructuring in prevention, how schools convey high expectations to their students, mentoring, collaboration to foster children's resiliency, research on resiliency, and the integration of resiliency into communities.
