Contributors to this volume show how social workers can use interventions to enhance those resiliency factors.

Elaine Norman is a professor of social work at Fordham University and has authored or coauthored several books, including Filial Deprivation and Foster Care and Beyond Placement: Mothers Look at Foster Care, both published by Columbia.
