Resilience of university students: A whole-university approach to promote mental health and wellbeing
with Dr Snigdha Dutta, Project Associate, Cambridge Centre for Teaching & Learning, University of Cambridge
"In this webinar, I will be clarifying the role of resilience as a socio-ecological process of human development, which goes beyond the narrow conceptualisation of resilience as a trait. I will present findings from my PhD in which the validity of a novel socio-ecological model of resilience was investigated in undergraduate students. Finally, the implications of embedding resilience into the whole-university approach to promote mental health and wellbeing in students will be discussed."
