One Step Forward: Understanding and promoting resilience for young people in care – One Step Forward Young People’s Group with Claire Stubbs and Angie Hart
“Hopefully you have picked up the booklet because you are a carer who would like to support your child to be more resilient. you may be a practitioner wanting to give carers some tips on how to support their child or young person… or you may be a young person who is interested in resilience, wants to know more about it, what is needed to support your own resilience and also how you can support your friends too!”
“Maybe you think the word ‘resilience’ echoes thoughts of happy, thriving children and young people who manage the ups and downs of life. The way we see it, together, you and your carer or worker, are embarking on an exciting journey, and understanding about resilience can help young people overcome difficult times in their lives and live the life they want to.”
