Date  Thursday 29 April 2021

Time 16:00 – 17:30

Location Online (please arrive in the online platform 5 minutes prior)

The Resilience Forum is for ANYBODY (with a pulse!) involved with or interested in resilience research

Session Summary
This forum aims to explore the topic of resilience within a biopsychosocioecological systemic approach. In particular, it focuses on holistic intervention for children living in vulnerable contexts and facing adversity underlying how community enabling can foster resilience thanks to the role of the different formal and informal actors (children, youth, adults, families, social services, schools, service providers, NGO, …).

After a short introduction to define a common theoretical framework starting from literature and research results, participants will be facilitated in working collaboratively in small groups (breakout rooms) and as a whole group to share “their culture” about resilience and community work, and to co-build wider understanding on how they can take a step forward for their resilient moves.

The facilitator will integrate the use of different techniques and tools to help participants in gathering into a “small community” and actively discuss, reflect and create together. Creative and playful techniques taken from sociodrama will be combined with the use of Mural, an online platform enabling teams to think and collaborate visually and to work remotely on the same creative space.

The participation of everybody will be key to co-defining the taking home messages as a group co-creation.

Presenter
Marco Ius – Assistant professor in Education, University of Padua.

Biography
Marco Ius is assistant professor in Education at the University of Padua. After completing his Ph.D. on Resilience and Hidden Child Survivors of the Holocaust (2009), he has worked full time since in P.I.P.P.I. (Program of Intervention for Prevention of Institutionalization) a research-training-intervention program developed as an intensive care program for vulnerable families, funded by the Italian Ministry of Welfare. P.I.P.P.I. aims at preventing the forms of institutionalisation by balancing risk and protective factors, and focuses on supporting parenting through multi-professional and resilient based intervention in order to face child neglect. P.I.P.P.I. represents, in social affairs, the first action the Italian government took with continuity towards social, educational, and health services working with families on a national level, in order to harmonize the practice of services by providing professionals, throughout the entire country, with a common theoretical and practical framework, training sessions, tools to work with families and document the care path, and an evaluation approach. After the Pilot in 10 cities (2010-2013), P.I.P.P.I. has been scaled up since 2013, involving about 50 new local authorities each year. A total of about 8,000 professionals of Social and Health Services and 3000 children and their families in more than 200 territories have been engaged across editions overall since 2011.

Who might be most interested 
All people interested in reflecting and working collaboratively are welcome: academics, practitioners, researchers, students, carers, community workers, service users, people with lived experience of mental health problems, young people, adults, all ages. Even if the forum will use online tools asking participants to work in their laptops, the session is planned to be inclusive and will try to make everybody feeling welcoming and able to participate.
