How are children who have experienced adversity able to function competently? Why do some children appear to be resilient? These fascinating, complex, and puzzling questions have been studied mostly from a behavioral and psychosocial perspective. Advances in neuroscience provide the opportunity to bring neurobiology to the study of resilience and to ask whether our knowledge of neurobiological processes and mechanisms can contribute to our understanding of resilience. The goals of this volume are to examine both the behavioral-psychosocial and neurobiological aspects of resilience and to help move the field toward a model that integrates these two perspectives. The integration of the behavioral-psychosocial aspects with the "new biology" of resilience will provide an unprecedented understanding of processes of development in atypically and typically developing children and will have profound implications for preventive intervention programs.
