This review is from: Resiliency: What We Have Learned (Paperback)
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.
