The authors review results from a study in Western Australia of stress exposure and resilience among Aboriginal children and young people who come from families where there is violence. The findings are provocative given the social and economic marginalization the youth face. Results show that the youth who are the most resilient are those who report less adherence to their culture and come from lower rather than higher socioeconomic households.
