  • Ảine de Roiste Institute of Technology Bishopstown, Cork
Palavras-chave: resiliência, competência em risco, desenvolvimento infantil


Apresentamos uma breve exploração da resiliência e o desenvolvimento infantil neste estudo. Os conceitos de resiliência e "competência de risco" são elaborados juntamente com algumas das implicações práticas destes em relação ao cuidado e bem-estar da criança. Algumas questões são levantadas em relação ao cuidado e dos riscos na infância e, ao mesmo tempo, permite que as crianças sejam capazes de avaliar e lidar com os riscos por si mesmas.
