This handbook shows that resiliency-based schools give young people the ability and opportunity to redirect their energies towards achieving success.
An introductory handbook
Building Resiliency in Schools: an introductory handbook introduces the concept of resiliency and offers ideas on how it can be immediately applied within the organisation of a school.
The notion of resiliency is based on many years of research and practice. It focuses on the processes of human development and the forces within and outside us as people that promote positive, healthy growth for both individuals and groups, as well as the organisations they are part of. It is about connections, hope and possibility.
Resiliency is also a concept that causes us, as educators, to stop and question what we have been doing and whether we are effective as we could be. In short, it makes us think differently.
