Abstract #318
Children of African Origins Displaying Resilence in Berlin 
Presenter: Tricia Morrison/Isichei
Currently, I’m enrolled in the Master’s program Childhood Studies and Children’s Rights at Free University Berlin Germany. I’m presently in the process of writing my Master’s Thesis on the Topic of Resilience. The research will focus on Resilience displayed by Children of African Descent/Migration Background living in Berlin Germany. The Target Group is 10-20 children of African origins living in Berlin for at least 5 years within the age range of 10-19 years. The Grounded Theory research technique along with a mixture of qualitative and quantitative methods will be used to collect and analyze data. However, expertise knowledge of the Resilience Research Centre available through the RRC Evaluation Tool Basket and previous studies done by the Centre will be used as a guideline and a point of reference throughout the entire research project. Within the framework that, “…resilience is both the capacity of individuals to navigate their way to the psychological, social, cultural, and physical resources that sustain their well-being, and their capacity individually and collectively to negotiate for these resources to be provided in culturally meaningful ways” ( Ungar: 2008), it is my intention to present the research findings as a Paper Presentation.
