Synopsis: Resilience is a topic that is currently receiving increased attention. In general, resilience refers to the capacity of those who, even under the most stressful circumstances, are able to cope, to rebound, and to go on and thrive. Resilient families are able to regain their balance following crises that arise as a function of either nature or nurture, and to continue to encourage and support their members as they deal with the necessary requirements for accommodation, adaptation and, ultimately, healthy survival. Handbook of Family Resilience provides a broad body of knowledge regarding the traits and patterns found to characterize resilient individuals and well-functioning families, including those with diverse structures, various ethnic backgrounds and a variety of non-traditional forms. This Handbook brings together a variety of perspectives aimed at understanding and helping to facilitate resilience in families relative to a full range of challenges.
"?Dorothy Becvar brings together an A-plus group of multidisciplinary experts in the field of family research and practice to examine the construct of resilience across diverse family structures, cultural groups, and hardships.
Overall, Handbook of Family Resilience is a well-written, comprehensive book that may leave its readers with more questions than answers. Calling for a paradigm shift in how families are conceptualized, studied, and treated, this pioneering book belongs on the shelves of anyone interested in working families experiencing stressful life events. It is a must read."
