About this course

The evidence base for interventions which build emotional resilience in vulnerable adolescents is limited and there are few examples of areas in the UK which have implemented resilience building interventions in an integrated fashion across a local population.  

This talk will describe a pilot programme (Newham HeadStart) in Newham, London which has sought to develop such an approach through implementing a number of evidence based resilience interventions into practice across the population.  It will focus on challenges which have been encountered in doing so and some of the lessons for implementation of such preventative interventions.
