The Promotion of Wellness in Children and Adolescents

Cicchetti, D.; Rappaport, J.; Sandler, I.; Weissberg, R. P. (Editors). Child Welfare League of America, Inc., Washington, DC. 2000. 541 pp. $28.95. Paperback.

The concept of psychological wellness has achieved increased visibility in recent years, slowly replacing the old ideas of diagnosing and repairing established disorders. The search for pathways to wellness is being conducted in the fields of community psychology and developmental psychopathology, and through an ecological perspective on development. The authors—theoreticians, researchers, and clinicians—explore possibilities for fostering positive development in children and youth. Chapters cover:

  • Empowerment
  • Resilience and stress protection
  • Psychological wellness in the neighborhood context
  • Primary prevention strategies
  • Development of psychological wellness in maltreated children

The volume ends with recommendations for future research and applications in primary prevention and psychological wellness.
