Resilience Across the Lifespan Research Group

Organisation profile

Organisation profile

To enhance the ability of individuals, groups, and communities to thrive despite experiencing adversity.

Our research investigates how individuals, groups, and communities achieve positive adjustment and outcomes in the context of past and present adversities, including trauma, poor physical and/or mental health, loneliness, marginalisation and social exclusion, disability, inequalities, prejudice, discrimination, contact with the legal system, and out-of-home care.

Working from this broad perspective, our research focuses on:

  • developing an understanding of risk and protective factors across the lifespan;
  • developing an understanding of the circumstances, processes, or operations of these factors;
  • developing, evaluating, and refining resilience-based intervention strategies and models to promote resilience and positive outcomes at the individual, group, and community levels and identifying their culture-specific dimensions; and
  • developing, evaluating, and testing appropriate measures and models for the study and assessment of resilience.
