Resilience among Military Youth
Easterbrooks, M. Ann; Ginsburg, Kenneth; Lerner, Richard M.
Future of Children, v23 n2 p99-120 Fall 2013
In this article, the authors present their approach to understanding resilience among military connected young people, and they discuss some of the gaps in their knowledge. They begin by defining resilience, and then present a theoretical model of how young people demonstrate resilient functioning. Next they consider some of the research on resilience among children and adolescents in military families, and examine programs that may promote resilience among military youth. Finally, they suggest how the theory and research they discuss can guide policy makers and practitioners as they work to protect and promote resilience the next time our nation is at war.
