A recent study funded by the National Institute of Health Research reported links between staff well-being and service user outcomes (Maben et al 2012). This training day focuses on practitioners across different professional groups offering insights into ‘What are the best approaches to support practitioner resilience?’. And to debate how practitioner resilience can be shaped in the current context of practice. Through the integration of theory and reflection you will be supported to explore your own resilience as a practitioner. Mechanisms that can enhance your resilience and the impact on you and your work when key “resilient moves” are absent will be discussed.
Working with and alongside children, young people, families and adults exposed to social disadvantage and inequalities is at the heart of our work. Resilience research and practice provides powerful knowledge to help people having particularly tough times.
