This groundbreaking volume thoroughly explores the intriguing and sometimes baffling phenomenon of positive adaptation to stress by children who live under conditions of extreme vulnerability. Examining the determinants of risk, the development of competence in the midst of hardship, and the nature of stress-resilience, THE INVULNERABLE CHILD will be of profound interests to psychiatrists, developmental and clinical psychologists, social workers, nurses, educators and social scientists, and all those involved in the psychosocial well being of children.
