The purpose of this course is to extend understandings of “risk” and resilience into contextualized and relational perspectives based in contemporary theory and research. Students will examine resilience as a dynamic link between an individual and their multi-level, relational developmental system. In-depth analyses of resilience as a process facilitated by social ecological factors such as families, schools, and communities will be explored.
