Transcending Resilience - Youth & Policy

In this article, Sandra Vacciana discusses findings from a peer research project that critically explored the role of resilience in supporting the wellbeing of young people from minoritised communities, with racialised identities. The findings of the study make a compelling case for the youth sector to expand its understanding of the term resilience. The article outlines the experiences of young people who have had to become adept at rising in the face of adversity and questions the concept of resilience when understood uncritically and disconnected from social structures that constrain young people.
