EP Reach-Out presents: Introducing the Resilience Ball Framework with Dr Cath Lowther

May 5 - 16:00 to 16:30


The wellbeing of our young people is front and foremost in our minds at the moment. There has been a lot of discussion about their mental health in the media in relation to COVID, and more recently in relation to the war in Ukraine. Unfortunately these conversations often tend to focus on mental distress, which raises the question: is it appropriate to frame our reactions to events like a global pandemic and military conflict within a psychiatric narrative?

Perhaps alternative narratives of hope and resilience are more relevant. This webinar will explore the concept of resilience as an ‘ordinary magic’ (Masten, 2001, 2014) and a contextually located attribute. It will also ask how educational psychologists can challenge current narratives regarding the human response to adversity. As @WillPsyc shared: ‘What matters to resilience is a sense of hope that life does indeed make sense, despite chaos, brutality, stress, worry or despair’ (Panter-Brick, 2014).
