Documentation Introduction:Resilience Practice Framework

(From The Web)

Resilience Practice Framework

1 Overview

In the community services sector, there is a significant
between what are known to be effective interventions
children and families (research) and what is being
on the ground (practice).

There is an increasing expectation that child and family
services adopt and 
implement evidence-informed
practices (EIP) and programs as the main way of
improving the health, safety and well-being of the
children and families they serve.

Traditional methods to facilitate the engagement of
practitioners in evidenceinformed 
(such as stand-alone training) have been demonstrated
to be 
ineffective on their own.

A more structured process that addresses systemic and
organisational issues is required to make sure new
practices are implemented 
effectively. Implementation
science offers an evidence based approach to
implement practice changes in organisations (Fixen,
Naoom, Blasé, Friedman 
& Wallace, 2005).

In recognition of this, The Benevolent Society (in
partnership with the Parenting 
Research Centre)
developed and adopted a Resilience Practice
Framework (RFP) 
across all child and family services.

The approach focuses on maximising the 
likelihood of
better outcomes for children by building a protective
network around 

Based on the work of Gilligan (1997) and Daniel &
Wassell (2002), it identifies 
six domains of a child’s life
that contribute to the factors known to be associated
with resilience.

These domains are: secure base, education, friendships,
talents and 
interests, positive values, and social
competencies (Daniel, Burgess & Antcliff, 2012).

Markus keck and Patrick Sakdapolrak

ERDKUNDE Vol. 67 · No. 1 · 5–19

Over the last decade, a growing body of literature has emerged
which is concerned with the question of what form a promising
concept of social resilience might take.

In this article we argue that social resilience has the potential to
be crafted into a coherent analytic framework that can build on
scientific knowledge from the established concept of social
vulnerability, and offer a fresh perspective on today’s challenges
of global change.

Based on a critical review of recently published literature on the
issue, we propose to define social resilience as being comprised
of three dimensions:

1. Coping capacities –the ability of social actors to cope with and
overcome all kinds of adversities;

2. Adaptive capacities – their ability to learn from past experiences
and adjust themselves to future challenges in their everyday lives;

3. Transformative capacities – their ability to craft sets of
institutions that foster individual welfare and sustainable societal
robustness towards future crises.

Viewed in this way, the search for ways to build social resilience
 – especially in the livelihoods of the poor and marginalized
– is revealed to be not only a technical, but also a political issue.

Building Resiliency(in Stop Bullying Now)

(From The Web)

The word “resiliency” originated in the science of

Some objects, like a china cup, will shatter if hit
with a hammer.

Some objects, like a soft piece of wood, will be
dented by a hammer blow.

Some objects, like a rubber ball, will bounce
back to its original shape if hit with a hammer.

Researchers in human resiliency wanted to
understand why some people bounce back when
exposed to negative events that lead other people
to be seriously traumatized.

In the
Youth Voice Project study, we found that
many youth who reported repeated mistreatment
told us they were not significantly traumatized.

Others reported severe or very severe negative

A young person’s resiliency may well cause this
difference in response to similar events.

From The Research Paper's Web

These Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) set out
requirements at two stages, commensurate with the different
levels of complexity and responsibility in teaching, assessing and
supervising social work degree students.

The standards may also be helpful for those supporting and
assessing newly qualified social workers, experienced social
workers undertaking formal or informal continuing professional
development or others engaging in learning and development

These standards will come into effect in October 2013, and are
minimum requirements.

They apply to all placements within the academic year 2013/14
and thereafter. From October 2015 all practice educators of social
work students must be registered social workers.

Partnerships may individually or collaboratively wish to develop
requirements at a higher level.

The standards will be phased in from October 2012 through
transitional arrangements, outlined in Questions and Guidance
 (April 2012).
