Abstract

This chapter examines the resilience of young people as they cope with processes of school exclusion, placement as students with emotional and behavioral difficulties (EBDs), and interactions with the criminal justice system. The authors report findings from a qualitative study in the United Kingdom called “Pathways Into and Out of Crime: Risk, Resilience and Diversity” that showed links between criminality, school experiences, and coping.
