Abstract: This article summarises some of the key findings from empirical research on the experiences and effects of various life events on personal wellbeing. Taken together, the findings indicate that social address influences the likelihood of experiencing multiple potentially stressful life events, and limits the capacity of individuals and their families to negotiate these successfully. The results also provide a basis for targeting services to those who are more likely to be placed at risk as a result of the load of life events that may befall them. As such, prevention and early intervention efforts are best targeted and tailored to those most at risk. The research drew on data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey and Growing Up in Australia: The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC).
