Human development takes place through processes of progressively more complex and reciprocal interactions between a growing individual and a changing context.
Using evidence from longitudinal data, following individual lives over time, it is possible to gain insights into how children and their families respond to socio-structural opportunities and constraints and to what extend they are able to react adaptively and steer the course of their lives despite exposure to adversity.
Focusing on the experiences of children and young people growing up in conditions of socio-economic hardship Professor Ingrid Schoon introduces a developmental-contextual systems approach for the study of resilience, challenging assumption of necessary developmental constancy as well as the idea that experiences in early childhood set up an invariant life path.
