There are always times in human experience that feel especially troubled and threatening. Ours certainly presents problems from the personal level (substance use disorder, discrimination and injustice, socioeconomic inequality) to the world stage (war, oppression, refugee migration, economic aggression). How do children survive and mature in this threatening, depriving, and changing environment? What are their internal and family resources, and those from their natural communities and professionally planned programs? How can planners and clinicians make a positive difference? We present people who have lived and worked through this world to offer perspectives on what is happening and how we can help.

Learning Objectives

1. Describe the problems that children encounter, from the micro level (substance use disorder, discrimination and injustice, socioeconomic inequality) to the macro level (war, oppression, refugee migration, economic aggression).
2. Explore how children survive and mature in communities that often are threatening, depriving, and rapidly changing.
3. Discuss the internal and family resources that are supportive of childhood development, and those from their natural communities and professionally planned programs.
4. Examine how planners and clinicians can enhance their capacity to make a positive difference in the lives of the children they work to assist.
