Our Approach: Science to Practice
LBI Foundation's approach is to support you to integrate the science of wellbeing and resilience (and trauma-informed practice) with the knowledge and wisdom you already hold.
To help you help others in times of COVID-19 uncertainty, we have identified three foundational building blocks, that you can bring to your focus in your supporting adult roles. These building blocks are made practical through strategies, and are grounded on the science of positive psychology, trauma and growth, and knowledge translation. Across all the communities we support, we will be bringing focus to energising these building blocks through caregiving, teaching and supporting adult roles.
