Lessons from applying the emotional resilience evidence base into practice


Anna Freud Centre (link Map)
4-8 Rodney Street | London | N1 9JH | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

The evidence base for interventions which build emotional resilience in vulnerable adolescents is limited and there are few examples of implementation in the UK.

This Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) talk will describe a pilot programme (Newham HeadStart) in Newham, London which has sought to develop such an approach through implementing a number of evidence based resilience interventions into practice across the population. It will focus on challenges which have been encountered in doing so and some of the lessons for implementation of such preventative interventions.

The talk is by Dr Simon Munk, Emotional Resilience Lead at UCLPartners and Children and Young People Mental Health and Resilience Strategic Lead for the London Borough of Newham.

Aimed at researchers, providers, commissioners and school staff.
