This guide aims to stimulate the development of effective community-based interventions in the field of childhood adversity and to contribute to the growing theory of practice in this area. This volume is a sequel to the collection "Childhood and Adversity: Psychological Perspectives from South African Research". Whereas that guide focused on the nature and consequences of psychosocial adversities facing South African children in their development, this new work deals with the ways in which such adversities may be addressed. It presents a selection of community-based programmes that have attempted to intervene in the broad areas of childhood adversity. From the earlier focus on "problem", the emphasis has shifted appropriately to "solutions" at a time when South Africa is seeking to meet the challenges of social reconstruction.
