A Resilience Framework 21 Closing Thoughts The Project Competence studies of competence, risk, and resilience reflect in small part the large transformation that occurred in the last quarter of the twentieth century in the ways that child and adolescent problems were conceptualized. The study of resilience was part of a Zeitgeist that gave rise to developmental psychopathology and a more integrated science of human development and its variations. Research on resilience underscored the importance of understanding good as well as poor adaptation, competence as well as symptoms, and protective processes as well as risk processes.

Competence assessments during the elementary school years focused on academic achievement, peer relations, and socialized conduct (compliance and rule-abiding behavior versus antisocial or rule-breaking behavior in different contexts), though we also collected information about many other aspects of positive adaptation, such as participation in sports and other activities. Data were also collected on internal adaptation, including well-being and symptoms of distress. Although our definition of competence focused on an observable track record of effective adaptation in the child’s world of home, school, and neighborhood, we have had a keen interest in understanding how positive or negative aspects of internal functioning and traditional measures of behavioral and emotional symptoms are related to competence in age-salient developmental tasks.
