Resilience and Health presents a wide-ranging scientific dialogue on resilience issues interpreted in the following contexts: theoretical and philosophical, in the perspective of lifespan developmental psychology, the experience of chronic disease and disability, as well as in the family and social settings. Bringing together these individual parts is an emphasis on principles of positive psychology.
