Youth are back bone to the nation

Youth are back bone to the nation. They can change the future of the society with their well being and courageous behavior. They are here to show us that. It is important that at all levels of activity, in both the family and the community, youth be given the opportunity to pursue activities and develop skills that will enable them to engage in trades and professions which are of service to their fellow human beings. It stressed the role of youth, the next generation which inhabits the Earth and inherits the responsibility to protect the planet, in fighting the complex scientific problems and social quandaries presented by climate change.

AWESOME

Nan Henderson, Bonnie Bernard and Nancy Sharp-Light have provided over a decade of quality information about resiliency.

As a scholar, a practitioner, and a survivor of the foster care system, I wish that more professionals understood and practiced the resiliency-based materials that they have collectively provided over the years.

Their ideas, if used, could reduce school failure, and improve the kinds of outcomes typically endured by young people in the foster care system.

I have a chapter in this book, and hope that any readers will find my experiential view useful in both your work and your life perspectives.

This book is a wonderful resource. Nan Henderson has been working with kids, schools and communities for years, and she knows what makes a difference for kids (and the adults who live, work and play with them). In this book she first reviews the research in a way that is eminently readable. It is interesting as well as easily understood. I could see how I could immediately put the information to work... But I did not have to dream up anything new, because the next part of the book is full of activities, programs, ideas that I could put to work in my work immediately. If you are looking for one resource on resiliency for your work or your family, this is it.

In order to help children be successful in work, school, and life, we need to help them identify positive characteristics and strengths in their lives. Nan Henderston's book "Resiliency in Action" is a research based book, that actually helps implement the notion of resiliency (i.e. empowerment, optimism, and empathy) into the classroom. The book includes articles, activities, and programs that one can start using today! Research has shown that resiliency interventions have produced positive changes in behavior and grades! Henderson's work has definitely motivated me to change my frame of mind, and remind me why I love working with children in the field of education. She reminds us all that children, no matter how traumatized or troubled, are not helpless, but have the opportunty to become as successful as they wish to be!

Resiliency in Action is a great book for Social Workers, Case Managers, Therapists, Marriage Family Therapists, educators, and Parents!!! It provides a new perspective of working with at risk youth and disenfranchised families as well as best practices in raising children. "The Capacity Inventory," "Resiliency Wheel," and the "Resiliency Quiz" are awesome tools in teaching resiliency. The book is well written and covers many environments in where the resiliency concept may be applied (Schools, Communities, and Counseling). I thought the section on resiliency and the brain is indispensable. It is extremely important to understand the connection between experiences and the formation of the brain to be able to create positive change. Resiliency in Action conveys a powerful message in changing the way we think and behave when trying to assist individuals change their lives for the best!!!

If this book doesn't change the way you see, work with, and relate to others in your life, you haven't read it. Where you now see youth and adults with problems, it will show you people with strengths and promise. Where you now feel helpless and hopeless, it will show you your power to help others change and to make changes in your own life. It is filled with readable research and interviews with major thinkers in the field of resiliency and practioners in many fields who are successful in their work with others. It provides practical ideas for teachers, parents, counselors, social workers, nurses, doctors, administrators, employers, spouses, and friends to encourage the best from those they work with and those they love. As a clinical psychologist and social worker for over 20 years, I have used the resiliency based principles and suggestions in this book to create a more successful strength-based practice. If reading this book doesn't change you, that is probably because you are already resiliency based in your work and relationships with others. If so, you will still find validation, new ideas, and resources to help what you already do to grow in effective new directions.

If you buy one book on resiliency, buy this one! This book is packed with helpful information on the philosophy and concept of resiliency - and why it is thee emerging buzz word on working with kids. But this book also gives you lots of practical ideas on how to operationalize this important concept. I used Henderson's previous book on resiliency to write successful grant proposals and to get support from administration on the work we are doing with at-risk kids. This current edition is even more useful. As a clinician you will definitely use ideas from this book for working with children, teens, parents, and schools. Strength-based work has become increasingly important in the mental health field and Nan Henderson has been at the forefront of the resiliency approach.
BUY THIS BOOK! Share it with everyone you know. It is a gem that every counselor, educator, and youth worker needs to read, and apply, now. I don't know of book that is more useful.

As a counselor working with families and children for over a decade, this is THE book I recommend for research-based, practical, and effective strategies for providing children, youth, and families what they need to succeed. Resiliency, after all, simply means successfully navigating life's challenges, and this book takes all the research about how kids and families overcome trauma, crisis, and adversity and in easy-to-understand language explains WHAT ANYONE CAN DO to help themselves, children, families, or their community successfully overcome whatever challenges they face.
