Putting Resilience Theory into Practice in Communities
Speaker: Angie Hart
Psychologist Ann Masten summarises the developments in resilience research that led to a shift from studies focusing on internalised conceptions of personal resilience to wider ecological approaches. She calls these, the fourth wave. However, is it now time for an ‘official’ fifth wave which draws together collaborative resilience research, practice, community development and activism? If so, what would this look like and have any of us yet managed to bring it about? If you are already doing work like this yourself, or want to in the future, this workshop will be an opportunity to learn how to maximise your impact and connect more with others doing fifth wave work. In this workshop participants will:
Consider ways of doing resilience research that share research goals, processes, publications and financial resources between researchers and communities.
Critically evaluate resilience research from participatory, social justice and activist perspectives.
Learn how to develop a community of practice for resilience research and practice.
Explore how academic authority and privilege can be harnessed for community benefit.
Learn how to overcome some of the challenges of doing participatory and/or activist resilience research.
Profile or plan their own participatory and/or activist resilience research.
