Our uncertain times are hard enough for adults to navigate. For all too many young people-even many who appear to possess good coping skills-the challenges may seem overwhelming. More and more, resilience stands as an integral component in prevention programs geared to children and adolescents, whether at risk or not. Resilience Interventions for Youth in Diverse Populations details successful programs used with children and teens in a wide range of circumstances and conditions, both clinical and non-clinical. New strength-based models clarify the core aspects of resilience and translate them into positive social, health, educational, and emotional outcomes. Program descriptions and case examples cover diverse groups from homeless preschoolers to transgender youth to children with autism spectrum disorders, while interventions are carried out in settings as varied as the classroom and the clinic, the parent group and the playground. This unique collection of studies moves the field toward more consistent and developmentally appropriate application of the science of resilience building. Among the empirically supported programs featured: Promoting resilience in the foster care system. Developing social competence through a resilience model. Building resilience in young children the Sesame Street way. School-based intervention for resilience in ADHD. Girls Leading Outward: promoting resilience in at-risk middle school girls. Resiliency in youth who have been exposed to violence. Resilience Interventions for Youth in Diverse Populations is an essential resource for researchers, professionals/practitioners, and graduate students in clinical child and school psychology, social work, educational psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, developmental psychology, and pediatrics.

Marian Coret, Harriet Winterflood, Angela Lambert, Emma Climie University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada Canadian Journal of School Psychology --- "This book discusses successful, evidence-based resilience intervention programs for children and adolescents, considering clinical and nonclinical populations. This book addresses an important topic, describing programs for both clinical and nonclinical populations of children and adolescents. It is written by an international collection of experts and is supported by extensive research. The book will be extremely useful for practitioners who work with children." Doody's Review Service Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D., Cermak Health Services September 2014 --- "Resilience Interventions for Youth in Diverse Populations reveals that resilience training has promise across this wide spectrum. Most programs, including those from other countries, are well described, offering very practical suggestions and ideas that seem promising and that fit within the editors' general perspective. Overall there is a strong focus on adding programs for young people in schools, and we feel there are rich ideas that are easily applicable. The book may be a good starting point for educational services to review and consider the various options that might be integrated into their curricula. The emphasis on positive psychology and prevention is pleasing to see." Ian M. Evans and Heather Nakahara PsyCRITIQUES April 13, 2015, Vol. 60, No. 15
