Resilient Therapy: Strategic Therapeutic Engagement with Children in Crisis
Hart, Angie; Blincow, Derek
Child Care in Practice, v14 n2 p131-145 Apr 2008
This article offers an overview of Resilient Therapy (RT) and outlines a case study of how it can be used in practice. RT draws on the resilience research base, and has been designed to meet the needs of children in crisis by providing insights and analytical tools that help carers and practitioners build relationships of trust in the hardest of circumstances. RT emphasises Masten's notion of "ordinary magic", and the idea of the "Resilient Therapist" has emerged through practice situations with parents, carers and colleagues, and through work with specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. The core competences of the Resilient Therapist are outlined, with a case example providing an illustration of how RT can be applied. ["Resilient Therapy: Strategic Therapeutic Engagement with Children in Crisis" was written with Helen Thomas.] (Contains 1 figure and 2 notes.)
