About my research:


Resilience in sixth form college students who experience domestic violence:what we know; what they say; how we can help


I have worked with sixth form college students facing adversity, including domestic violence (DV), for several years. I want to find out how young people are able to overcome the effects of DV to achieve academically when the odds appear to be stacked against them and there is a widely held pathological view of their condition.
