This workshop offers an introduction to the concept of resilience and Resilient Therapy and provides the opportunity to consider those things we can do to cushion children more broadly, from the worst effects of adversity. It introduces our approach, a straightforward and strategic way of working with children, young people and families that builds capacity to manage life’s challenges more resiliently.

  • Have built on your understanding of the resilience evidence base

  • Be able to identify resilience building principles and techniques
  • Have considered how to link ‘resilience’ with your own life or work with children and families
  • Have learnt about a practical approach that aims to turn resilience theory into practice for all to use.
