Nurturing Hidden Resilience in Troubled Youth free pdf This text examines resilience as a social construct- it offers a comprehensive theory of resilience and a model for the application of this theory to direct practice with high-risk youth in clinical, residential and community settings. Ungar's analysis of resilience and approach to intervention focuses on the unique group of youth who are labeled dangerous, deviant, delinquent and disordered. He explores how these youth discover and maintain well-being through discursive empowerment: using detailed case studies, Ungar finds that high-risk youth explain their problematic behaviours, such as gang affiliations and drug and alcohol use, as strategic ways to compose healthy stories about themselves that bring them experiences of control and acceptance. It challenges what popular media refer to as a "youth problem". Ungar offers an alternative approach to troubled youth and suggests that we build upon, rather than resist, their constructions of resilience as a method of effective intervention.
