A conceptual and methodological comparison with the field of child resilience

Abstract

The label resilience has been used in the field of child psychology and of child development to identify the way in which children could cope with adverse events of their past, in order to live (to develop) "normal" lives. In this field, the following definition is in use: "children resilience is a universal capacity which allows a person, group or community toprevent, minimize or overcome the damaging effects ofadversity. " (Grotberg, 1997). It is interesting to note that the concepts as discussed in the collective book on resilience engineering (Hollnagel, Woods & Leveson, 2006 ') share some similarities with the methodological and theoretical developments found in the child resilience field. Three examples of thèse similarities are discussed hère. First we discuss the cross disciplinary nature of the child and organisational resilience. Secondly, we discuss the similarities between the risk factors versus resilience factors in both fields. And finally, we introduce the importance of the cognitive and social construction of safety.
