Cover info:

Violence prevention research findings suggest different key aspects for the application of a powerful prevention strategy. The project presented in this book tries to tackle the complexity of supporting a healthy mental development
in children while also meeting the requirements for successful prevention. Resilience promotion proved to be a suitable concept for implementing a violence prevention strategy in secondary schools.

In this practice-oriented research project, partners from France (IRTS, Rennes), Germany (ZfKJ, Freiburg), Poland (Breakwater Foundation, Krakow), Portugal (PFSE, Porto) and Sweden (University of Halmstad) co-operated in a two year project with the aim of supporting schools in developing a resilience-promoting and violence-preventing strategy in a multi-level and multi-setting approach.

As a result, a toolbox for resource-oriented training in schools for teachers and pupils was created. The measures undertaken during the project have been evaluated empirically and the influence of resilience-promoting activities in schools has been assessed.
This publication addresses not only practitioners in schools seeking information on how to implement resiliencepromoting activities, but also lecturers and researchers from the field of violence prevention and resilience promotion.

The project was funded by the
Daphne III Programme of the
European Commission.
