- Out of the Woods: Tales of Resilient Teens
by Stuart T. Hauser, M.D. ’66, Joseph P. Allen, Ph.D., and Eve Golden, M.D. (Harvard University Press) Through interviews with 70 people who had been institutionalized in a psychiatric facility during their adolescence, the authors investigate why some teens bounce back from a troubled adolescence while others don’t. The authors observe that the subjects who fared best had an interest in and capacity for reflection, responsibility and relationships, as well as a positive attitude and the desire to change.
