1 Resilience: Building the Social Capacity of Children and Youth to Thrive September 2010
Resiliency Initiatives © 2010 Defining Resilience Resilience can be understood as: The capacity of individuals to navigate to resources that sustain well-being; The capacity of individuals’ environment to provide resources; and The capacity of individuals, their families and communities to negotiate culturally meaningful ways for resources to be shared. Source: Dr. Michael Ungar (2008) Discussion Paper for The Learning Partnership
Resiliency Initiatives © 2010 Wholistic Approach Focus on what is strong in children and youth and not what is wrong with them Focus on children and youth as resources and less on them as absorbing resources Focus on youth as at potential – help them explore their preferences, hopes, and intentions, not what we think they need Focus on what is important and less on what we think is urgent 3

Resiliency Initiatives © 2010 To see all individuals as “at promise” rather than “at risk” is a fundamental shift that means facilitating rather than fixing, pointing to health rather than dysfunction, turning away from limiting labels and diagnosis to wholeness and well-being. 5 Fundamental Shift
Resiliency Initiatives © 2010 Evidence for a Strength-Based Approach Research suggests that fifty (50) to seventy (70) percent of children growing up in families with mentally ill, drug/alcohol addicted, abusive, or criminally involved parents or in poverty-stricken families do overcome these risk factors to live functional, socially contributing lives (Benard, 1995) Evidence that many children who might have received a diagnostic label do, in fact, ‘grow out’ of their problems without professional help. (Cohen, 1993) There is also evidence that a predominant focus on deficits and highlighting problems can actually lead to poor outcomes (Miller et al., 1997)
