The Resilience Research Centre: A Report on Findings and their Application to Practice
Speakers: Michael Ungar, Linda Liebenberg
The Pathways to Resilience Research Project examines service use patterns, personal and ecological risk factors, and aspects of resilience of youth across different cultures, contexts, and with complex service histories. This mixed methods study is taking place in Canada, China, Colombia, New Zealand, and South Africa. In all five countries, we partner with communities and service providers to identify: 1) The culturally specific aspects of resilience that young people use to cope with problems; 2) The psychological, social, and environmental risks that young people face; and 3) Young people’s service use patterns, i.e. their use of services like Child Welfare, Corrections, Mental Health, and Special Educational Services, their use of informal supports from their family and communities, and their use of informal services provided by communities and local not-for-profit organizations. This presentation will review findings from the qualitative and quantitative data, discussing the implications for service provision.
