Holistic Well-being SIG: Call for Book Chapters

Call for book chapters

Indicative book title: Resilience and wellbeing: children, families, communities and societies

We are excited to announce that we have plans for an edited book as part of the EECERA book series, on the theme of resilience. We recognise that resilience and wellbeing are timely and apply to many contexts, circumstances, populations and life stories (Masten, 2006). We aim to explore the diversity and complexity of interpretations on resilience globally (Clauss-Ehlers, 2004; Dubovitz et.al., 2016) to clarify possible misconceptions, to investigate the discourse and construct of resilience within varied environments and to record research involving policy and practice. In this direction, some possible chapters that could emerge are reactive and proactive ways of supporting resilience in young children, families and communities; trauma-informed care; risk; advocacy; legal implications; socio-cultural aspects of resilience.

We are inviting extended abstracts (500 words long) for chapters that will unpick conceptual and research-informed considerations related to resilience within policy, provision and/or practice in the early childhood field. In the extended abstract we encourage you to identify theoretical perspectives, such as philosophical, sociological, psychological, historical or political. Also, please provide a rationale and scope of the proposed book chapter, reflecting on the links between children, families or communities and resilience; 3-5 keywords; and an outline of the basic considerations.

The submission deadline of the extended abstract is: 30 April 2021, at [email protected]
Depending on the amount of responses we might consider the possibility of a Special Issue also in the long term.

With our kindest regards,

the Holistic Wellbeing EECERA SIG convenors,
Babs Anderson, Zoi Nikiforidou, Wilma Robles-Melendez
