The Mental Immunity Phenomenon presents the new concept of 'mental immunity' - a child's natural capacity to grow and develop as a result of adversity and distress. It devises an alternative theory of child psychology that proposes that situations that cause a child difficulty may potentially benefit that child's future personality. Upon recognition of this phenomenon, the perspective of educational and psychological intervention must be altered from the normal trend of eliminating stress factors to one of promoting the child's ability to derive the maximum future benefit from the experience of contending with them. With this unique theory follows an exploration of the development from child to adult and a complete dissection of the systems of mental immunity along with approaches to take advantage of them.
