S04 E05 - Exploring Resilience and Protective Factors for Young Carers
Show Notes

In this episode Dr Gemma Gough discusses her thesis which explored young carers' own perspectives on the factors which contributed to their positive educational achievement.
We consider the terminology and experiences of young carers and how research has historically considered the negative outcomes for this group of young people.  We then explore the factors that contribute to resiliency and benefit finding including self-efficacy, connectedness and social relationships and how schools can support positive outcomes.
