This section includes the following areas of the Resilience Framework:

Instill a sense of hope

The research paper Five Essential Elements of Immediate and Mid-term Mass Trauma: Empirical Evidence, Hobfoll et al. tells us that that resilience can be helped by promoting:

  • A sense of safety
  • Calming
  • Sense of self- and collective- efficacy
  • Connectedness
  • Hope

Activities to help staff teams and/or children and young people think about character strengths and what makes them resilient can be downloaded here.

Teacher Resilience

The British Psychological Society has produced a briefing paper ‘Teacher resilience during Coronavirus school closures'. You can download the paper here. This paper is offered as a ‘conversation starter’ designed to promote teacher resilience, taking elements of practice known to foster resilience.
