Massey University on the Pathways to Resiliency Research Project
Our partnership with Massey University on the Pathways to Resiliency Research Project is well into the second phase of following up with young people we interviewed a year ago and beginning qualitative interviews. It is wonderful to meet up and see how much can change for a young person in a short time!
The Pathways to Resiliency project is a long-term study (8 years) looking at how young people in Aotearoa-New Zealand do in their lives and how things turn out for them. It aims to better understand what helps them thrive and survive and to learn about what types of experiences hold them back
The research is ecological – it looks at young people’s whole environments. It explores how they see themselves, their relationships with their friends and family/whanau, how they experience their communities, what services they have used and what that’s been like for them. It has a particular focus on young people facing significant risks or who are vulnerable.
The research is linked into an international study focusing on young people’s pathways to resilience. This work is based in Canada and is being led by the Resilience Research Centre, directed by Professor Michael Ungar of Dalhousie University.
