An ongoing longitudinal study of 558 focal youth and families was used to review mechanisms of resilience. Findings demonstrated how resilience to economic adversity for families was promoted by marital support, effective problem solving, and a sense of mastery. For youth, resilience was promoted by support from parents, sibling, and other adults. (JDM)
