Understanding Resilience

This is one of 22 multimedia learning resources published by Scotland’s Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services. The resources are designed for social work students and practitioners, but will also be valuable to others working with children and families.

Understanding Resilience is a 10 minutes long animated multimedia presentation from 2006 by Brigid Daniel & Sally Wassell. The objective is to explain the concept of ‘resilience’ and the value of ‘protective factors’ in planning to support vulnerable children.

It is a self-contained package comprising four sections and including a glossary, references and text transcripts. It requires Adobe Flash Player on your computer on your computer and the package cannot be downloaded for keeping.

I think this presentation summarizes the concepts well, but students might want more up-to-date references – the most recent is 2002. I particularly like how easy it is to navigate between the individual elements.
