My presentation will discuss links between inequalities and achievements in educational settings, reviewing very brief interventions which allow young people to (i) negotiate the middle class culture of university, (ii) show resilience to stigma and (iii) adopt a 'growth mindset' which reduces the risk of poor emotional health. I will discuss the commonalities of these highly successful interventions which should be adapted for and replicated in non-US contexts.

Jörg Huber is a psychologist researching resilience in people living with long term conditions; recently he started developing an interest in enhancing resilience through educational interventions. Other interests include research on behavior change and psychoeducation, diet, physical activity and smoking cessation.
