Theme 2: Resilience
The resilience theme aims to bolster our understanding of how to protect the mental health of communities and organisations exposed to traumatic events and to bolster resilience at a micro- (individual, team, small organisation) and macro- (large organisation, community, national) level. The research work within this them aims to address a number of key questions. First, how can we optimise pragmatic post-incident resilience interventions for organisations that are routinely trauma-exposed and those which are not? Second, can we develop and optimise effective, pragmatic post-incident resilience interventions for the educational sector to help protect the mental health of children? Third, what role does community support play in resilience and recovery, and how do we optimise effective post incident interventions which encourage members of trauma-affected communities to seek appropriate support and where necessary psychosocial care.
