“This volume offers an outstanding example of methodologically sophisticated, theory-driven, developmentally informed, longitudinal research…it is a model for other studies to emulate…I urge readers to relish the richness of this volume, and to savor the important new knowledge to be gained about pathways to a more resilient set of outcomes for us all.” - Marsha Seltzer, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin/Madison, USA
"Borkowski and colleagues' current text, Risk and Resilience: Adolescent Mothers and Their Children Grow Up... offers up interesting and thought-provoking questions and answers regarding what exactly happens to adolescent mothers and their children when they grow up. This is certainly a timely issue... This book would be an excellent addition to any undergraduate class on developmental psychology and would me especially welcome in graduate-level classes in psychology, sociology, and public policy." - F. Richard Ferraro, PsycCRITIQUESFrom the Publisher:
In 1984, a longitudinal study was launched at the University of Notre Dame to evaluate the social and psychological consequences of teenage parenting. Interwoven Lives: Adolescent Mothers and Their Children (2001) described, in detail, the development of these adolescent mothers and their children across the first eight years of life. Major delays were first noticed in children's patterns of attachment at age 1 and their IQ and personal adjustment scores at age 3. By age 8, school-related problems were found in 70% of the children. With these data as the backdrop, this companion volume, Risk and Resilience, identifies major risk factors associated with long-term developmental delays as well as the processes that led to resilience in some of the mothers and children.
This new volume traces the children's development at ages 8, 10, and 14. The editors focus on identifying risk and protective factors associated with important life course trajectories as the mothers entered early adulthood and their children became adolescents. Relatively unexplored protective factors - such as religiosity, patterns of father involvement, and romantic relationships - were found to positively influence development for both teenage mothers and their children. This new text also addresses:
Risk and Resilience appeals to researchers in developmental psychology and family processes as well as agency and government professionals charged with public policy and service delivery.
