Abstract

This book covers a wide spectrum of questions and topics in relation to children's, adolescents' and families' difficulties, as well as to epistemological,meta-theoretical, taxonomical, and intervention issues. Particular emphasis has been given by many authors to discussing and suggesting various alternative methods and practices of promoting child, family, and school potential and capacity to deal with personal and contextual risks and adversities. Most of the suggested approaches highlight the psychosocial, system- or community and especially school-based and child-centered paradigm focusing, not only on the treatment of children's deficits but mainly and above all on strengthening and sharpening their social, emotional and learning skills and on promoting child, family, and social school resources and well-being.
