Event description

Description

Dr. Michael Ungar is among the best known writers and researchers on the topic of resilience in the world. His work has changed the way resilience is understood, shifting the focus from individual traits to the interactions between people and their families, schools, workplaces, and communities. As the Canada Research Chair in Child, Family and Community Resilience and Professor of Social Work at Dalhousie University, as well as a family therapist, he has helped to identify the most important factors that influence the resilience of children and adults during periods of transition and stress.

Conference Learning Objectives

1. To understand how individuals and families with complex needs use “problem” behaviours to enhance their resilience and wellbeing when more socially acceptable solutions are not available.

2. To become familiar with 20 skills associated with a social ecological approach to individual and family intervention informed by research on resilience.

3. To discuss the Child and Youth Resilience Measure, an assessment tool that can help clinicians explore the hidden resilience of children and youth.

4. To learn about seven aspects of resilience necessary for positive development

5. To develop strategies for working without resistance with hard-to-reach, culturally diverse children, adolescents, and their families.

6. To discuss ways services can be structured for children, youth and families that make resilience more likely to occur.

Dr. Ungar will also be presenting an evening workshop from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Diagnosing Resilience Across Cultures and Contexts: Seeing The Positive in Young People Even When There are Serious Problems.*
