The first issue, contains "Empowering African American Children To Become Resilient: Early Success in Overcoming Violent Families and Communities (A. Leavelle Cox), a feature article that describes a study of 15 successful African American adults who found they felt empowered as children to set goals and to decide within themselves to separate early, both psychologically and physically from their hostile, chaotic, and violent environments. The second issue contains the following feature articles: "Helping Sexually Abused Children through Using Strengths and Resiliency Approaches" (Kim M. Anderson), which presents the strengths perspective in social work and the resiliency literature in developmental psychopathology as an alternative conceptual framework for practitioners working with sexually abused children; and "Domestic Violence as a Contributing Factor in Divorce: Perspectives of Divorcing Parents" (Frederick Buttell), which reports the results of a study of 155 divorcing parents that found the subjects reported a significant level of domestic violence as having occurred in their marital relationship and that these abusive behaviors led to their decision to divorce.
