The Resilience Doughnut for caregivers
Resilience is the process of continual development of personal competence, while navigating and negotiating with available resources, in the face of adversity.
What is the Resilience Doughnut?
The Resilience Doughnut is a practical, strengths-based model for developing resilience in children, young people and adults. It identifies and combines strengths needed to thrive in a modern world. Developed at the Resilience Centre Australia, the model is based on a wide body of international research examining the factors common to children, young people and adults who have shown resilience in the face of adversity. Now a validated measure, the Resilience Doughnut has had considerable success across Australia, and now spreading across Japan, South Africa, Canada and the UK.
What makes the Resilience Doughnut different?
The Resilience Doughnut is a simple, interactive tool that combines the key areas of research over the past decade. It is a “process” rather than a program that just teaches resilience while using the language of optimism. And it promotes developmental changes that occur throughout the different environments that a person is in over the course of a lifetime.
Why is Resilience important?
People who have happy and fulfilling lives have positive life skills that help them grow through life’s inevitable challenges, rather than being damaged by them.
How can the Resilience Doughnut help?
The Resilience Doughnut helps identify the strongest and most resilient areas and skills in a person’s life. Research tells us if we use those skills the person will overall become more resilient. It is a real strengths based approach. The model can be applied in working with individuals including adults and children, with families, and also with staff to achieve better personal and professional resilience.
