Objective: The aim of the article was to describe the process of resilience in school children of alcoholics. Additionally, it was important to determine how risk and protective factors, personal resources and the social environment (within the family and without) determine the occurrence of positive adaptation. Methods: The study involved 182 children in two comparison groups (children of alcoholics and children of non-alcoholics) in aged 9 - 12. The clinical group consisted of 90 children from families with alcohol problems highlighted on the basis of a CAST screening test. The control group comprised 92 people from families without alcohol problems. An expression of the resilience of children of alcoholics was the level of a positive adaptation, as measured by two indicators: developmental tasks and life satisfaction. There has also been measuring individual and environmental predisposition. Results: The results pointed to the need for the adaptation of therapeutic and preventive treatment to the current stage of development as indicated by developmental tasks.
