Understanding of resilience in adults with a history of child labor
Presenter: Aline Madia Mantovani (Universidade Estadual Paulista/UNESP, Brazil)
Co-Authors: Renata Maria Coimbra 
Introduction: The present study aims to understand the resilience processes in adults with a history of child labor through the analysis of the reason that contributed to this insertion in work and withdrawal from school, as well as social support available in their contexts for the development of resilience processes.
Methods: A total of 131 adults, of both sexes, participated in the empirical research of two Brazilian institutions; A questionnaire, semi-structured interviews and visual methods (photographs) were used. It was adopted as a theoretical perspective to understand the resilience at the interface with adult life and child labor from the understanding of the personal, inter-relational and cultural aspects present in the life of the participants. 
Findings: In this way, the influence of culture, context and personal characteristics in the construction of strengthened identities, despite the work carried out in childhood/adolescence, is discussed.
