Suggested Responses: Students should define resilience as a psychological state in which a child and family possess a range of protective factors that help them cope with, and offset, the negative effects of risk factors that arise in their lives as a result of major stressors. Students should describe the specific role of protective factors in the cases of divorce, substance abuse/addiction, and homelessness. In the case of divorce, a secure attachment to parents, relative family harmony, continued contact with the absent parent, and a supportive school and teacher are particularly protective. In some cases, children who are younger and have more easy-going temperaments may gain additional protection from damage. Parents who are psychologically stable also help alleviate negative effects. In the case of addiction or substance abuse, one supportive parent, a warm and responsive teacher, or intervention from a community agency can alleviate resulting insecurity. In the case of homelessness, secure attachment to a parent, good interpersonal skills, and the opportunity to attend school can all serve as protective factors.
