Our Introduction to Boingboing’s Resilience Approach workshop is a CPD accredited workshop for anyone interested in finding out more about Resilient Therpay and The Resilience Framework. The workshop runs on a single day for 4 hours with a 1 hour lunch break (usually from 9:30am to 3:00am). The workshop is currently being held online and access information will be sent to ticket holders prior to the event. You can find dates for upcoming sessions to the right (or below on mobiles).
Resilience refers to the positive capacity we have to achieve good outcomes in spite of hardships or serious threats to our development. Finding ways to boost a child’s ability to respond resiliently when life is tough, can help them to do better than you might have thought they would. It can boost the likelihood of better long-term outcomes for them. A resilience lens can help not only beat the odds for individual children, but also to change them for children more widely.
This webinar offers an introduction to the concept of resilience and resilience theory and provides the opportunity to consider those things we can do to cushion a vulnerable child, and vulnerable children more broadly, from the worst effects of adversity. It introduces our Resilient Therapy approach – a straightforward and strategic way of working with children, young people and families that builds capacity to manage life’s challenges more resiliently – because overcoming adversity, whilst also potentially changing, or even dramatically transforming, (aspects of) that adversity is what matters.
By the end of the workshop you will:
• have built on your understanding of the resilience evidence base
• know why and how some children and young people beat the odds better than others
• be able to identify resilience building principles and techniques
• have considered how to link ‘resilience’ with your own work with children and families
• have learnt about a practical approach that aims to turn resilience theory into practice for all to use.
This course has been certified by the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles and so it can count towards your CPD for the year.
