`In his clear and accessible style, Colby Pearce defines the value and significance of resilience as an essential aspect of psychological survival. He traces the origins of resilience in the early relationships which shape our emotional and social development and describes processes and responses that enhance resilience for children who have had a less than adequate start in life. This is a valuable book for anyone involved in children's emotional well-being, from parents and community to schools and policy makers.'-Heather Geddes, Educational Psychotherapist and author of Attachment in the Classroom

This is a short, accessible guide to promoting resilience in children. Resilience helps children to cope with adversity and `stand on their own two feet', which can be crucial to their development, well-being, and future independence and success in adulthood.

The author covers three key factors that affect resiliency: vulnerability to stress and anxiety, attachment relationships and access to basic needs. For each, the author gives practical advice and strategies, such as how to regulate children's stress and anxiety, how to encourage and maintain secure attachments, and how to assure children that their needs are understood and will be met. The model presented will help parents and carers ensure their children grow up happy, healthy and resilient.

This book will be invaluable for parents, carers and practitioners in supportive roles caring for children.

Pearce (Jessica Kingsley Publishers) is a necessary and succinct guide in a market a little too full of lengthy texts but an area, too, where much is said but how to achieve the objectives is not always understood... this is a book helpful for parents, carers and professionals. -- Terry Philpot, Young Minds
