Russell, Sue, Ed.; Sullivan, Robert, Ed.
CEIC Review, v7 n1 Aug 1998
In this issue of the "CEIC Review," commissioned papers for a national invitational conference on student resilience developed across contexts of family, work, culture, and community are summarized. The concept of resilience-promoting interventions has emerged from research and indicates that some children survive adversity without lasting damage. Research on the factors that influence resilience development has important implications for education, and the papers summarized in this issue provide implications for policy and practice. The following are included: (1) "The Well-Being of Children in a Changing Economy: Time for a New Social Contract in America" (Leslie S. Gallay and Constance A. Flanagan); (2) "Another Look at the Elephant: Child Care in the Nineties" (Deborah Lowe Vandell, Kim Dadisman, and Kathleen Gallagher); (3) "Maternal Employment Influences on Early Adolescent Development: A Contextual View" (Jacqueline V. Lerner and E. Ree Noh); (4) "The Economic and Psychological Dynamics of Single Motherhood and Nonresident Paternal Involvement" (Paul Florsheim); (5) "The Effects of the Mother's Employment Status on the Family and the Child" (Lois Wladis Hoffman); (6) "The Impact of Divorce on Adjustment during Adolescence" (Christy M. Buchanan); (7) "The Myths and Realities of African-American Fatherhood" (Edmund W. Gordon); (8) "Make Room for Daddy II: The Positive Effects of Fathers' Role in Adolescent Development" (Marc A. Zimmerman, Paul C. Notaro, and Deborah A. Salem); (9) "Passages to Adulthood: The Adaptation, Achievement, and Ambition of Children of Immigrants in Southern California" (Ruben G. Rumbaut); (10) "Agency and School Performance among Urban Latino Youth" (Leslie Reese, Kendall Kroesen, and Ronald Gallimore); (11) "Stressful Experiences and the Psychological Functioning of African-American and Puerto Rican Families and Adolescents" (Ronald D. Taylor and others); and (12) "Cultural Explanations for the Role of Parenting in the School Success of Asian Children" (Ruth K. Chao). (SLD)
