Resilience has become an important topic on the safety research agenda and in organizational practice. Most empirical work on resilience has been descriptive, identifying characteristics of work and organizing activity which allow organizations to cope with unexpected situations. Fewer studies have developed testable models and theories that can be used to support interventions aiming to increase resilience and improve safety. In addition, the absent integration of different system levels from individuals, teams, organizations, regulatory bodies, and policy level in theory and practice imply that mechanisms through which resilience is linked across complex systems are not yet well understood. Scientific efforts have been made to develop constructs and models that present relationships; however, these cannot be characterized as sufficient for theory building. There is a need for taking a broader look at resilience practices as a foundation for developing a theoretical framework that can help improve safety in complex systems. This book does not advocate for one definition or one field of research when talking about resilience; it does not assume that the use of resilience concepts is necessarily positive for safety. We encourage a broad approach, seeking inspiration across different scientific and practical domains for the purpose of further developing resilience at a theoretical and an operational level of relevance for different high-risk industries. The aim of the book is twofold: 1. To explore different approaches for operationalization of resilience across scientific disciplines and system levels. 2. To create a theoretical foundation for a resilience framework across scientific disciplines and system levels. By presenting chapters from leading international authors representing different research disciplines and practical fields we develop suggestions and inspiration for the research community and practitioners in high-risk industries.

The model of restorative resilience supervision was first developed in response to the emotional demands of midwives, doctors and nurses caring for families who had experienced miscarriage and stillbirth. The programme was designed to support professionals to process their workplace experiences and support them to build resilience levels to ensure they had future coping strategies beyond the initial life of the supervision sessions. Since the initial studies, the programme has been delivered to over 4,500 professionals, and model of training has evolved from sessions being delivered directly by a clinical psychologist, into a range of professionals being trained to deliver the sessions themselves. The Restorative Resilience Model of Supervision reader will introduce anyone with supervisory responsibilities to restorative resilience and give them an in-depth understanding of the approach, allowing them to begin using its methods with those they work with.

This book explores the concept of resilience and its significance in responding to a rapid and ever-changing globalised world whilst critiquing its ‘buzzword’ status in contemporary times. Drawing on research from a range of educational settings, the book demonstrates that the resilience of individuals and their surrounding systems should not be viewed in isolation and that the interplay between individual resilience, community resilience and resilient societies is complex and symbiotic. On this basis, it illustrates that efforts to promote resilience would benefit from a systems approach capable of coping with this complexity. Using the ideas of agency and the power of self-determinism, a development of Bronfenbrenner's bio-ecological model is presented to illustrate the complexity of their interplay. Existing models of resilience are developed with the book offering the Dynamic Interactive Model of Resilience (DIMoR) as a way to analyse and support resilience which moves beyond a reductionist, descriptive and ‘fashionable’ presentation of resilience.

The capacity of a system an ecosystem or a social-ecological system to tolerate disturbance, without collapsing into a qualitatively different state controlled by a different set of processes, is known as resilience. Written by some of the leading international thinkers in the field, Exploring Resilience in Social-Ecological Systems provides a state-of-the-science account of resilience theory, based on comparisons of a set of case studies around the world, and gives some fascinating insights into the subject.

"In the spring of 2015 I convened a Collaborative Inquiry (CI) for eight weeks with five co-participants from my work place in order to explore the topic of cultivating resilience to meet life's challenges. Conducting an action research project was my final requirement for a Master's Degree in Leadership at Saint Mary's College of California. In addition to providing a safe space and a systematic method to inquire about developing capacity for resilience in overcoming adversity, the project aimed to expose the co-participants to an action research method based on learning from the experiences that the co-participants bring to the inquiry. For six cycles of action and reflection we engaged in making meaning out of data gathered from our personal sharing, observations, interviews, and readings. Resilience usually involved the following: having firm goals with flexible strategies; accepting accountability and seeing viable options; thinking positively and having trust; asking and receiving non-intrusive support from others. The co-participants did not feel they had cultivated or developed increased resilience during the CI. However, they agreed that they had dramatically increased their awareness of resilience. I witnessed this CI activate resilient behavior as they shared their challenging situations during our meetings, as they opened to the advice and support of the other co-participants, and as they acted effectively in response to difficult situations. A CI employs methods that strenghhen relational leadership, and the practices of relationship leadership modeled in my Leadership master's program aided my creation of a CI environment characterized by trust, authentic participation and collaboration."--Abstract, p. 1.

After the Flood

After the Flood

This is a book about implementing that planning before it’s too late, and about learning to pick up and get going after a fall.

When disaster strikes, the amount of planning done ahead of time will dictate how quickly a system can recover and return to normal. Even the largest and most complex organizations can experience upset and disruption, whether by flood, fire, power failure, earthquake, or anything else that life can throw at us. Resiliency, like any other performance measure, can be designed into businesses, institutions, communities, cities, and even countries. This is a book about implementing that planning before it’s too late, and about learning to pick up and get going after a fall. Join Marianne as she explores the world of modern infrastructure technology within the context of a job with real threats, exciting opportunities, and throbbing headaches. With her, we learn what resilience means to a city or company, how to assess hazards and plan for continuity, and how effective system design can reduce the impact of disasters. From the basic concepts and terms to how they fit into real systems, After the Flood is a clear and engaging introduction to resilience planning for students, industry practitioners, or anyone interested in infrastructure, business continuity, and emergency and risk management.

In terms of resilience that may to some extent be context and culture specific, the present study extends the large body of Western evidence on resilience by investigating pathways to resilience in the Chinese context. In this book, the author summarized the results from the theoretical and empirical resilience research and also reviewed the factors contributing to the current mixed findings. With a focus on Chinese adolescents, the present study drew on protection theory (Rutter, 1990) and person-environmental transactional processes theory (Kumpfer, 1999) and attempted to explore the factors associated with competence in the face of risk and the factors that are predictive of this competence. Through employing a mixed-method approach, the current study showed that not all risk factors had negative effects to the same degree, and only some protective factors (e.g., opportunities and recognition for pro-social involvement in school) were significantly associated with outcomes, which suggest differential salience in their role relevant to resilience.

Resilience in Children, Adolescents, and Adults: Translating Research into Practice recognizes the growing need to strengthen the links between theory, assessment, interventions, and outcomes to give resilience a stronger empirical base, resulting in more effective interventions and strength-enhancing practice. This comprehensive volume clarifies core constructs of resilience and links these definitions to effective assessment. Leading researchers and clinicians examine effective scales, questionnaires, and other evaluative tools as well as instructive studies on cultural considerations in resilience, resilience in the context of disaster, and age-appropriate interventions. Key coverage addresses diverse approaches and applications in multiple areas across the lifespan. Among the subject areas covered are: - Perceived self-efficacy and its relationship to resilience. - Resilience and mental health promotion in the schools. - Resilience in childhood disorders. - Critical resources for recovering from stress. - Diversity, ecological, and lifespan issues in resilience. - Exploring resilience through the lens of core self-evaluation. Resilience in Children, Adolescents, and Adults is an important resource for researchers, clinicians and allied professionals, and graduate students in such fields as clinical child, school, and developmental psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, education, counseling psychology, social work, and pediatrics.

This volume focuses on resilience in educational contexts which has emerged as an important field of research, with recent investigation into resilience of school students teachers, and post-secondary students and staff. The book integrates theoretically diverse viewpoints and research advancing relevant theory. It furthermore presents interventions which aim enhancing resilience in the educational context. The interplay between more basic research and actual practice in the classroom, university or workplace enriches relevant theory and research. Each chapter includes an explanation of how resilience is conceptualized in the research and the methods used to examine resilience. The chapters also provide a description of the context in which the research was conducted and how particular aspects of context influence the resilience process. Innovative approaches to exploring resilience are highlighted as well as directions for future research.
