Ungar, Michael; Teram, Eli
Youth & Society, v32 n2 p228-52 Dec 2000
Interviewed 41 high risk adolescents to examine the link between the process of empowerment and mental health. Respondents demonstrated how aspects of power that enhance the construction of health-promoting identities form a base for personal and social resilience in youth. Participants in the study articulated the interdependence between their wellbeing and their capacity to influence the social discourses constructing their identities. (SM)
