Conversely, a child might have significant generic, biological, psychological, or other vulnerabilities, but is less likely to develop a disorder if stressors are not significant. Therefore, each child has a different threshold for the development of a disorder, based upon the degree of vulnerability, resilience, risk factors, and stress. Ingram and Price (2001) view vulnerability and resilience on a single continuum with implications for the effects of risk factors and stressors.
