International Resilience Project

The International Resilience Project (IRP) is a multi-year international research initiative to develop a better, more culturally sensitive understanding of how youth around the world effectively cope with the adversities that they face in life. Led by Michael Ungar and Linda Liebenberg, the purpose of the IRP is to develop a better, more culturally sensitive understanding of how youth around the world effectively cope with the adversities that they face. The IRP uses a unique cross-cultural approach that employs both quantitative and qualitative research methods to examine individual, interpersonal, family, community and cultural factors associated with building resilience in youth around the world. In particular, the study has helped to develop the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM) and a tool-box of qualitative research techniques.
