About this book

This interdisciplinary volume examines the relationship between community resilience and family resilience, identifying contributing factors on the micro-, meso-, and macro-level. Scholars and practitioners focus on how community-level policies and programs facilitate the distribution of resources, assets, and opportunities that provide valuable assistance to families who are struggling or in crisis due to economic hardship, mental illness, and the effects of natural and human made disasters. Additionally, representatives of local government and community agencies on the “front lines” of developing policies and programs to assist families provide valuable context for understanding the ways communities provide environments that encourage and nurture family resilience.
Among the topics covered:

  • How cities promote resilience from a public health perspective
  • Family resilience following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill
  • Resilience in women from trauma and addiction
  • Trauma-sensitive schooling for elementary-age students 
  • Developing family resilience through community based missions
Resilience and the Community will be of interest to policy-makers, researchers, and practitioners seeking to facilitate the development of evidence-based resilience practices, programs, and/or policies for those working with families at risk.
