The Centre’s contact with schools on confidence and well-being has forcefully brought home the fact that overprotection of young people is undermining their resilience. We passionately believe if teachers and others working with young people understand resilience and how it is formed they will make a substantial contribution to young people’s well-being.
Dr Toni Noble is co-creator of the award-winning Australian school-based resiliency programme, Bounce Back. Dr Noble has run training workshops in Scotland for the Centre on Bounce Back in two previous years. We were delighted that she agreed to run another one in June 2010.
