How can we offer the best help for children going through hard times? Resilient Therapy (RT), a successful resilience-boosting practice developed through ESRC-funded research by Professor Angie Hart, has been embedded in two community organisations. The RT method offers a framework to help disadvantaged children and young people 'bounce back' in tough times.

Combining research evidence and practice-based experience, RT provides a selection of ideas or remedies to draw on when working with a child or young person. Hastings and Rother Primary Care Trust and East Sussex County Council Children's Services has commissioned the East Sussex RT Community of Practice, to help practitioners develop a Resilient Therapy approach in their work.
