Additional Information: This chapter examines a model for predicting developmental competence based on an ecological analysis of the child’s social surroundings as well as child capacities. For purposes of intervention it is important to identify the processes that lead to maladjustment. From an epidemiological standpoint the best predictors of problem behaviors seem to be a cumulative risk score that reflects the full range of processes in the ecological subsystems of the child. The type of risk appears to be secondary to the quantity of negative social factors. When youth resilience is considered, the contributions of such individual competencies appear to not overcome the effects of high environmental risk.
