TTiis article examines children’s coping and adjustment in the face of transition or crisis from an interactional point of view. Neither individual characteristics or interpersonal/situational factors are sufficient to explain children’s longterm adjustment. It is rather the interaction between individual characteristics together with changing interpersonal and other environmental influences which are necessary to understand coping and adjustment over time. Research and clinical observations are presented which support this argument.
