“Resilience Interventions for Youth in Diverse Populations reveals that resilience training has promise across this wide spectrum. Most programs, including those from other countries, are well described, offering very practical suggestions and ideas that seem promising and that fit within the editors’ general perspective. Overall there is a strong focus on adding programs for young people in schools, and we feel there are rich ideas that are easily applicable. The book may be a good starting point for educational services to review and consider the various options that might be integrated into their curricula. The emphasis on positive psychology and prevention is pleasing to see.”
