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.

"The goal of the editors is to assemble a state-of-the-art report on research and clinical issues that center on topics of vulnerability, invulnerability, coping and defense, resilience and risk, and long-term follow-up life history research. This volume meets that goal admirably."
— Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
