Educating for Resilience: Prevention and Intervention Strategies for Young People at Risk
This book presents a framework and model for the development of policy and practice in the care, education, and support of young people. It aims to help professionals implement positive programs and strategies to strengthen the environmental protective factors within families, schools, and communities that enhance the resilience of young people. The model is based on a set of 20 principles drawn from current research and practice. It forms a critical reference point and evaluation framework for considering approaches to practice and intervention. Schools provide a focus for the provision of holistic, integrated, and collaborative services. The full-service school concept model is described as a way to provide quality education with a comprehensive approach. Following background information on the policy considerations of the Victorian Department of Education, a description is provided of what it means to be marginalized or at-risk. The report concludes with a discussion of actions needed to devise, plan for, and help communities establish a number of pilot operations of full-service schools. Models are included for the pre-school, primary, and middle school years. (Contains 41 tables and 123 references.) (JDM)
