The “Make Resilience Matter” project uses NLSCY findings which show that IPV exposed children with better psycho-social outcomes have higher levels of school connectedness, family cohesion and social supports.
The qualitative data from this project support these results with interview participants reporting school/school related activities, extended family and social supports as contributing to their resilience processes.
These findings indicate that environments are critical to resilience promotion. Helping professionals need to enlist schools as vital resilience resources for youth for healthy outlets from violent environments. Extended family members and supportive adults are also crucial for these youth to turn to, as are strong social support networks. Availability of these options outside of the home appear to contribute to resilient outcomes for vulnerable IPV exposed youth.
