Document Number: 6653Resilient Children: Literature Review and Evidence from the HOPE VI Panel Study - Resilient children are those who thrive despite the many risks they face. This report reviews existing research from a range of social science disciplines to identify key factors that seem to be related to resiliency and understand the ways in which these factors act to protect children from negative outcomes. Then, using data from the HOPE VI Panel Study, the report explores which of these factors are related to resiliency in a sample of children from HOPE VI developments. Finally, the authors discuss the potential implications of this research for policy. An annotated bibliography on resiliency is included in appendix A. (Elizabeth Cove, Michael Eiseman and Susan J.
