Prospective Possibilities for Building Resilience in Children, Their Families and Communities
Dolan, Pat
Child Care in Practice, v14 n1 p83-91 Jan 2008
This paper explores a future agenda for building resilience in children, families and communities with particular emphasis on a greater utilisation of informal social networks. Following a brief revisit of its definitions and principles, a tentative framework for consolidating resilience between children, their families and communities is provided. Messages for future policy and practice are also considered in the light of learning provided by other contributors to this special issue of "Child Care in Practice." (Contains 2 figures and 1 note.)
