A one day course

Why do some young people cope with difficulties more easily than others? What factors really make a difference to how we deal with adversity? What can practitioners do to make a difference? This one-day course explores how you can develop an approach that builds on strengths to help young people deal with adversity, cope with change, survive disappointment and manage crises. It will draw upon practice, research and theory. Above all, it will enable participants to reflect upon their experience and build on their own strengths.

The course will include:

  • Resilience, risk and coping – what do we mean
  • Key resilience qualities for individuals and families
  • Implications of the different coping styles of young women and young men
  • Protective factors for individuals, families and communities
  • The significance of emotional intelligence, problem solving and optimism
  • Listening to young people and families and developing relationships of care
  • Supporting connectedness
