Our Resilience Frameworks are available to be downloaded as PDFs and used for free. You can find all the current versions on this page, including versions for Children and Young people, Families and Adults as well as Resilience Frameworks in a range of languages (see below). 

We happily offer the frameworks for free as we want our work to help as many people as possible, but if you do use our framework please clearly acknowledge Boingboing in anything that you draw on in your own work, and add links to the Boingboing website so that users can access the detailed rationale and processes applied to using our tools; this is also so that we can show our funders how popular our stuff is! We also love to collaborate with people and organisations who want to use the Resilience Framework – find out more here.

Follow these links if you want to know more about how to use the Resilience Framework as well as how it was developed and Resilient Therapy on which it is based. We also run a number of training courses that cover using the Resilience Framework and more.

Using the Resilience Framework

All our Frameworks are available as PDFs and can be downloaded and used for free from the Boingboing website. We’re always interested and excited when people want to use our work in new and creative ways or different contexts. So that we can maintain our academic and intellectual integrity we’ve put together a few guidelines that we’d like you to follow:

  • Please clearly acknowledge Boingboing in anything that you draw on in your own work, and add links to the Boingboing website so that users can access the detailed rationale and processes applied to using our tools.
  • When you use the Framework please make sure you reference it fully, e.g., ‘Resilience Framework (Children and Young People) Oct 2012 – Boingboing, adapted from Hart and Blincow with Thomas 2007’.
  • Please don’t change the Framework! People make lots of really interesting suggestions for things that could be included, some of which do get developed into alternative versions of the Framework (e.g., adult and family versions), but as our work is evidence-based, we need robust supporting evidence to back up any changes. So if you’ve got some evidence and ideas, please use them in your own name or sound them out with us.
  • When you are using the Framework we’d ask you to stay true to the BoingBoing aim, which is ‘To model and promote resilience research and practice that challenges social inequalities drawing on all our skills as staff, volunteers and friends.’ For us that means working co-productively, inclusively with the individual and wider system or context.

If you’ve got any other questions about using our stuff please e-mail us.
