Product Description

Resiliency A few years ago, resiliency theory was relatively new to the fields of prevention and education. Today, it is at the heart of hundreds of school and community programs that recognize in all young people the capacity to lead healthy, successful lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete overview of resiliency theory for educators 27 May 2005
By Mark Kerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is the best explanation of "resiliency" that I've ever encountered. It's easy to read, without a lot of jargon, and it provides all the information one would need on the topic. The author has done a great job pulling together all the research. Anyone who works in teaching, education, social work, child development, or counseling should have this on their book shelf. In short, this book is a treasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Researchers: read this book first 8 Jan 2009
By John Gookin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a doctoral student studying resilience education. I have read hundreds of books and articles related to resilience. I wish I had known to read this book first because it carefully presents the evolution over time of the three stages of resilience work. Knowing these stages has helped me sort out what seemed to be contradictions in this field. The new attitude of positive psychology is truly a new mindset and makes resilience education a mainstream topic that is appropriate at any school. Overall, this book has carefully organized material and is well written.

For a more practical how-to book, also get "Resiliency in action: Practical Ideas for Overcoming Risks and Building Strengths in Youth, Families and Communities, 2nd ed." (Henderson, 2007) which Benard co-authored.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright 2 July 2013
By Crystal L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It has some good information, but few actual suggestions on what to do. The majority of the book was just theory, I wanted more tangible suggestions that I could follow through with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edcoach 26 April 2009
By Mary E. Redman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Resiliency connects the research to ideas that feel like gut instinct to many educators. The book offers useful ideas for developing resiliency in young people--and in ourselves--to achieve success.
