Whilst much has been written about the identification of resilience in children and their families, comparatively little has been written about what practitioners can do to support those children and families who need the most pressing help.

Resilient Therapy explores a new therapeutic methodology designed to help children and young people find ways to keep positive when living amidst persistent disadvantage. Using detailed case material from a range of contexts, the authors illustrate how resilient mechanisms work in complex situations, and how resilient therapy works in real-life situations. In addition to work with families, helping welfare organisations achieve greater resilience is also tackled.

This book will be essential reading for practitioners working with children, adolescents and their families who wish to help their clients cope with adversity and promote resilience.

"Front line practitioners will find here a magical, practical approach to therapy well informed by theory. This is an important resource for those working in multiple contexts with children facing numerous psychological and social challenges." - Michael Ungar, Ph.D. Professor, School of Social Work, Dalhousie University, Canada

"Resilient Therapy gives unique and compelling voice to a vision for creating the means to promote healthy lives among all youth, even the most challenged and disadvantaged. This book provides a vital, timely, and empowering message of hope for all young people, parents, and practitioners." - Richard M. Lerner, Director of Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development, Tufts University, USA

"Resilient Therapy, importantly, recognises and validates the role of the front line staff, and - no less important - the experiences of young people.. a welcome addition to the sparse literature available to support and empower a workforce whose experience at the coal face too often reflects the despair of the very families they are seeking to support." Jude Sellen, Mental Health Today, UK
