Resilience in Child Maltreatment Victims: A Conceptual Exploration.
Mrazek, Patricia J.; Mrazek, David A.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v11 n3 p357-66 1987
Life stories of three child maltreatment survivors illustrate how resilience is fostered by various protective factors. Protective factors include personal characteristics or skills (e.g., precocious maturity, dissociation of affect), generic life circumstances (e.g., good health, social welfare services), and abuse-specific factors (e.g., timeliness of legal actions in child custody).
