Pathways to Resilience:

Partnering organizations have been invited to participate in a video dissemination project. Volunteering youth, who did not necessarily participate in the research, helped create videos about  findings they felt applied to them. Click on the links below to see what was important to youth.

Though still in progress, one of the major findings from the PTR is that positive service use experiences lead resilience processes, which in turn leads to functional outcomes (Ungar, M., Liebenberg, L., Armstrong, M., Dudding, P., and Van de Vijver, F. (2013). Patterns of Psychosocial Service Use: Individual and Contextual Risk factors, and Resilience among Adolescents Using Multiple Services. Child Abuse and Neglect, 37, 150-159).

What this means is that when youth have a positive experience with a service, they feel valued, listened to, they have decision making power over what happens to them, the resilience processes around them are more likely to be increased (for example, a strong belief system, be connected to their environment or community, have friendships with supportive peers, and have coping and social skills). Once these processes have been facilitated, youth do well. What doing well looks like depends on the culture and context of youth.
