Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This thesis explores how Resilient Therapy (RT) a published approach to operationalizing the findings of resilience research was introduced to formal kinship carers who are looking after children who have experienced abuse and neglect. The RT approach is underpinned by four key principles and it has five domains that can be used by parents and professionals as an aide memoire to inform practice. The research examined the question: How can an RT approach be implemented in support of kinship care practice?
