Resilience Framework CYP

Resilience research and practice

Working with and alongside children, young people, families and adults exposed to social disadvantage and inequalities is at the heart of our work.  Resilience research and practice provides powerful knowledge to help people having particularly tough times.

Boingboing provides opportunities to learn about resilience. We run regular Resilience Forums, develop Resilience Frameworks, books and other materials, and offer training and talks on resilient approaches to life’s challenges.  We are currently involved in several research projects, including some on schools-based or 'academic' resilience. Skip right now to the free suite of resources to help schools develop academic resilience (external link) which Professor Angie Hart produced with Lisa Williams with input from various other individuals and organisations, especially YoungMinds, Hove Park School and Eleanor Smith School.

While there are loads of academic articles and books on resilience, not enough of them provide practical tips to help children, young people and adults to bounce up against the odds. As well as working with individuals and groups, we also try to do our bit to tackle unfair practices by governments and other big players. Our work is strongly rooted in a social justice agenda, and we do not believe that resilience promotion should be about maximising the survival of the fittest.

That’s why we have been developing approaches, like Resilient Therapy (RT), and the Resilience Framework, for anyone to use.

The majority of our work is with children, young people and families, and those involved in supporting them. However, the more we disseminate our ideas, the more we find adult practitioners wanting information about how to make resilient moves to tackle real life situations too. We are therefore also interested in developing practitioner resilience.
