CYRRC

Check out the Child and Youth Refugee Research Coalition

www.cyrrc.org


The Child & Youth Refugee Research Coalition is a coalition started by the Resilience Research Centre's Dr. Michael Ungar to connect scholars, community partners and government agencies committed to promoting the successful integration of refugee children, youth and their families. While the Coalition was formed to contribute meaningfully to policies and interventions to facilitate the integration of recently arrived Syrian refugees to Canada, it has a much larger goal of helping all young refugees succeed, both in Canada and around the world. 

RYSE Project

The Resilience Youth in Stressed Environments (RYSE) Project website has now launched!

www.ryseproject.org


Oil and gas production and climate change have large impacts on social, economic and environmental systems that affect young people’s mental health and overall wellbeing. To better understand these complex relationships at both ends of the carbon cycle (production and consumption), the five-year multinational CIHR funded Resilient Youth in Stressed Environments (RYSE) research project will study the resilience of young people in Canada and South Africa.

What is Resilience?

Most commonly, the term resilience has come to mean an individual's ability to overcome adversity and continue his or her normal development. However, the RRC uses a more ecological and culturally sensitive definition. Dr. Michael Ungar, Co-Director of the RRC, has suggested that resilience is better understood as follows:

“In the context of exposure to significant adversity, resilience is both the capacity of individuals to navigate their way to the psychological, social, cultural, and physical resources that sustain their well-being, and their capacity individually and collectively to negotiate for these resources to be provided in culturally meaningful ways.” (See also Ungar, 2008 and Ungar, 2011)
