Keynote Speech by Dr. Michael Ungar, Dalhousie University.

In this presentation, Dr. Ungar will use examples from his clinical practice and research collaborations on six continents to explore the factors that contribute to the resilience of refugee children, youth and families. His work suggests the need for an ecological, culturally sensitive interpretation of what resilience means to young people who must cope with social and political unrest, marginalization and racism. His work challenges us to think about resilience as something nurtured by schools, families and communities rather than something inside individual children.
