The construct of resilience: a critical evaluation and guidelines for future work.
TLDR
A critical appraisal of resilience, a construct connoting the maintenance of positive adaptation by individuals despite experiences of significant adversity, concludes that work on resilience possesses substantial potential for augmenting the understanding of processes affecting at-risk individuals.
Emotion regulation among school-age children: the development and validation of a new criterion Q-sort scale.
TLDR
To foster the study of emotion regulation beyond infancy and toddlerhood, a new criterion Q-sort was constructed, and its ability to distinguish between maltreated and comparison children and between groups of well-regulated versus dysregulated children was supported.
The construct of resilience: Implications for interventions and social policies
TLDR
The focus of this article is on the interface between research on resilience and the applications of this work to the development of interventions and social policies, and a series of guiding principles are presented along with exemplars of existing programs based on the resilience paradigm.
Child maltreatment.
TLDR
This chapter addresses definitional, epidemiological, and etiological aspects of child maltreatment.

Longitudinal pathways linking child maltreatment, emotion regulation, peer relations, and psychopathology.

TLDR
Investigating the multiple levels at which change is engendered through randomized control trials will provide insight into the mechanisms of change, the extent to which neural plasticity may be promoted, and the interrelations between biological and psychological processes in the development of maladaptation, psychopathology, and resilience.
Dimensions of child maltreatment and children's adjustment: Contributions of developmental timing and subtype
TLDR
Results highlighted the role of severity of emotional maltreatment in the infancy–toddlerhood period and physical abuse during the preschool period in predicting externalizing behavior and aggression.
