Boingboing is a not-for profit organisation. We run regular Resilience Forums, develop Resilience Frameworks, books and other materials, and offer training, workshops and talks on resilient approaches to life’s challenges. We aim to be inclusive and we provide many free resources on our website. Boingboing believes in co-production and the majority of the work that we do is co-produced by members of the local community including young people. Our courses have been certified by the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles and so they can count towards your CPD for the year. We run the following courses in Brighton, and similar courses are running in Blackpool.

Approaching Mental Health ‘Difficulties and Disorders’ through Resilient Therapy – 1 Day Workshop
This new workshop is for attendees who have already completed the ‘Introduction to Resilient Therapy’ workshop and is for anyone supporting children, young people and families. Through Resilient Therapy, the course advocates a systemic approach to working with mental health difficulties. It will explore in depth, how and why ‘difficulties’ become ‘disorders,’ how the system itself can perpetuate and reinforce such difficulties and how to practice in a way that goes beyond conventional psychiatric and psychological responses.
Future dates to be confirmed.

We’re really flexible and we try to vary what we do to support everybody’s learning needs. If you fancy reading about our resilience approach before coming to a course, have a nose around the website, where we have lots of free resources.
