Synopsis: From Risk to Resilience examines the calamitous gulf between children and adults that has developed during the last 40 years. Symptomatic of this rift are drug abuse, teenage sexual activity and pregnancy and increasing school drop out rates. Our children are growing up vulnerable and are at risk of entering adulthood lacking the skills to thrive in society. This book offers intriguing insights into how this situation came about and some provides clear answers to this perplexing and urgent problem.. From Risk to Resilience leads the reader beyond the obvious symptoms to the roots of risk and provides a redeeming path to the future.
