The purpose of this project is to provide a comprehensive overview of the current research on resiliency and youth with special attention being paid to populations in foster care and residential treatment. A detailed research design is developed and proposed with the goal of providing case workers, foster parents, and residential treatment staff the tools necessary to promote resiliency of adolescents and youth in care. This project demonstrates the importance of resiliency for youth faced with adversity and provides concrete tools that practitioners can use in the field to determine the level of resiliency of their adolescent charges as well as proactive measures that can be undertaken to increase individual resilience.
