Calkins R. n.d.. Planning and Establishment of a Parent-Child Development Center=Family Based Education Centers: [Final report]. Honolulu, HI: Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate Center for Development of Early Education, 50 pp.

Annotation: This project developed a model integrated service system of educational, health, and social service programs for families of Hawaiian children (prenatal to age 5 years) who are disproportionately at risk for health, social, and educational handicaps. Four Native Hawaiian Family Based Education Centers were established, with three core educational components: A home visiting program, a traveling preschool program, and a center-based preschool. Activities included conducting an extensive assessment of community needs and developing ongoing ties with institutions of higher learning in the State. Strong health promotion and social service programs complemented the educational focus, and a case management system helped families assess their own goals in each of these areas. Community participation and ownership of the program were critical components. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]

Werner EE, Smith RS. 1989. Vulnerable but invincible: A longitudinal study of resilient children and youth. New York: Adams, Bannister, Cox, 228 pp.

Annotation: This is the third book published based on information gathered from the Kauai Longitudinal Study. The first book, "Children of Kauai," examined the effects of cumulative stress on children ranging from perinatal factors to poverty and inadequate caregiving; the effects included developmental problems, poor school achievement, physical disabilities, and intellectual retardation, among others. The second, "Kauai's Children Come of Age," examined the correlates of those stressors by focusing on the children's mental health problems and anti-social behavior. This book considers the children in the study who, despite the same limiting factors, managed to develop into competent young adults, who have demonstrated the necessary resilience to overcome their vulnerability. The book provides an overview of the study and the methodology, and examines sex differences in vulnerability and resiliency. It then considers the personal characteristics and the caregiving environments for the vulnerable but resilient children for each cycle of life, infancy, toddlerhood, middle childhood, and late adolescence. The book examines the interrelationships between significant child and caregiver variables to determine the implications for research and social action.
