Tipping the Scales from Risk to Resiliency.
Mundy, Jean
Parks and Recreation, v31 n3 p78-86 Mar 1996
Review of the research on at-risk youth and resilient youth (successful youth despite adverse family and environmental situations) focuses on environmental protective factors such as positive relationships and youth participation. Application to park and recreation systems suggests leisure systems can provide such positive factors as a caring supportive environment, positive adult relationships, high expectations, leadership opportunities, and community service.
