Abstract With the majority of children in the United States attending early care and education (ECE) prior to kindergarten ( National Survey of Early Care and Education, 2016 ), the opportunity to reach children early, and strengthen resilience in the context of everyday life, is profound. Yet, ECE teachers often lack professional supports to meet the needs of children impacted by trauma ( Cummings et al., 2017 , Loomis, 2018 ). The Roots of Resilience program was designed to address this issue ...

Young women at risk may struggle with a compromised sense of agency due to their backgrounds and daily challenges, potentially delaying them at the stage of emerging adulthood when they are required to become independent. The current paper looks at the development of agency through the experiences of young women at risk who successfully graduated from a National Civic Service (NCS) volunteering program. Thir...

Abstract This study aims to help explain surprisingly low official child maltreatment rates in rural southern U.S. counties with many child maltreatment risk factors. It investigates whether comparatively lower child maltreatment rates in rural, majority African-American counties are due to lower rates of substantiation. County-level data from the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) were linked with demographic and poverty data from the U.S. Census. Fractional response probit r...

Abstract Although well-being has become one of the three primary outcomes in child welfare for two decades, quality of life, a vital component of subjective well-being, has been largely ignored. This study examined quality of life and associated factors in a random sample of 225 children and adolescents placed in foster family homes. Quality of life was assessed using Cantril's self-anchoring ladder and logistic regression was used to determine factors associated with quality of life. The mean C...
Abstract China's four decades of rural-to-urban labor migration has created 36 million migrant youth, who encounter more adversity than their urban peers due to educational and socioeconomic exclusion. This study focuses on the psychological resilience of these migrant youth since it indicates the ability or success to cope with adversity. We examine psychological resilience indicators based on migrant youth language patterns extracted in a multidisciplinary way. Our research questions are: whet...

More specifically, the research questions were targeted towards mapping and characte...

Abstract Development of prosocial behaviours among adolescents is a valuable goal of any society. Using a cross-sectional survey design, the current study explored the role of external (school/university, friends and family, and community engagement) and individual developmental assets (purpose in life and cognitive autonomy) in explaining the development of prosocial behaviours among adolescents in Malaysia. A sample of 324 first year undergraduate students from two public universities in the n...
Abstract Internationally, there is growing interest in the adoption of alternative responses that divert families, when safe to do so, away from the courts and out-of-home care system. However, it is widely recognised that the crisis-driven nature of statutory child protection in conjunction with the dominance of risk-adverse practice can inhibit practitioners' abilities to implement such interventions. In Queensland (Australia), ‘intervention with parental agreement’ (IPA) is an alternative res...
