Summary

This project will undertake the initial planning phase of a larger study of student resiliency education in Canadian schools. Resiliency has been identified as the skills necessary to navigate psycological, social, cultural and physical resources to sustain well-being in the face of significant adversity. The Learning Partnership (TLP) is undertaking a comprehensive literature review of the existing academic and grey literature studies concerning resiliency and is basing their own research program on this work. TLP is specifically engaged in research targeting youth ages 10-14, when students are seen as particularly vulnerable due to both physical and school transitions. The project is based on the assumption that if schools can foster resilience they will support student’s overall well-being.
