Building resilience with disadvantaged children and young people.
Convenor: Kim Aumann, Amaze Research and Training, Brighton
Students, academics from the Universities of Brighton and Sussex, practitioners from both the voluntary and statutory sectors and parents have been developing innovative ways of building resilience to help children ‘bounce back’ when life is particularly tough. They will be applying a new way of working with disadvantaged children, Resilient Therapy™ (RT). Resilient Therapy offers a coherent framework for finding the best ways of helping children and families build up their resilience to very difficult circumstances.
