The Resilience Forum is a space where we welcome and encourage discussion, disagreement and debate about resilience and RT. As another way of developing our work further, we invite a few speakers to focus briefly on a specific aspect of resilience and then open it up to the floor. Presenters at the Resilience Forum have included parents, academics and practitioners and a similar mix is planned for future events. We usually meet at the Falmer or Moulsecoomb campus of the University of Brighton.
"To be able to reflect on our how I am integrating Resilience into practice was so valuable. I really do appreciate the forums which are consistently excellent, inspiring and challenging."
"Different aspects and different evidence – a very interesting experience."
"It felt as if everybody played a part in it. Great!"
ANYBODY (with a pulse!) involved with or interested in resilience research is welcome. The only stipulation is that you have tried to get your head around one of our RT books or at least something specific on resilience before you come so we all have a basic shared understanding.
So far debates have included child protection, sociological critiques of resilience, hope, inequalities, well-being, mentoring, reoffending, whether RT can be used to support young adults, collective resilience, building resilience in practice and feedback from eight intrepids from Brighton who went to a resilience conference in Halifax, Canada.
"Very stimulating debate and enjoyable too. Thank you."
"I enjoyed the points of discussion and the difference of opinion. Good to hear other people’s perspectives."
"This was excellent thank you!"
If you would like to view a Forum presentation again, or if you were unable to attend, we hope to upload slides to BoingBoing after each event in our Resources section.
