Luthar, Suniya S.; Cicchetti, Dante; Becker, Bronwyn
Child Development, v71 n3 p543-62 May-Jun 2000
Presents a critical appraisal of resilience, a construct connoting the maintenance of positive adaptation by individuals despite significant adversity. Addresses common criticisms, proposes solutions for those considered legitimate, and clarifies misunderstandings surrounding less valid criticisms. Concludes that work on resilience possesses substantial potential for understanding processes affecting at-risk individuals. Maintains that serious conceptual and methodological pitfalls remain.
