Human Strengths and Resilience is intended to serve as a bridge between these two rapidly expanding disciplines by focusing on the critical issue of human strengths and resilience in cross-cultural and international perspective. To achieve these ambitious goals the editors have assembled an international group of leading contributors who, taken together, have taught, counseled, consulted, and conducted research in all regions of the world, including North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Pacific Region, Latin America, the Caribbean Region, and the Middle East. Chapters focus on posttraumatic growth and resilience in such nations as Cambodia, Haiti, India, Syria, Armenia, Sierra Leone, Taiwan, Guatemala, and South Africa.
