As part of a holistic approach to the evolution and sustainability of effective resilience practices, we recognise the lynchpin role of these within cycles of employment. Strong practices established in these environments will percolate through large sectors of society and the evidence of best practice allows impactful measures to be advised upon and taken.
Projects based on our research help develop the resilience of practitioners and leaders who further promote environmental resilience. This work supports individuals, sustainable service provision, professional education and creates social success in areas of deprivation.
Resilience research has begun to apply resilience-focused concepts to supporting professionals in various fields including education, social work, nursing and midwifery, medicine and across professional groups. Our work follows an ecological-based approach to identify protective mechanisms that enable practitioners to thrive in the face of workplace adversity.
Numerous contextual factors have been found to influence practitioner resilience, and as the methods and outreach develop, we work with practitioners and learners on professional programmes, applying ecologically-based resilience approaches.
