Abstract

This article provides an overview of how arts-based approaches have the potential to support the development of young people's resilience. It also summarises our own research study that aimed to identify and evaluate the possible benefits of visual arts interventions for young people with complex needs. We began our research by reviewing arts based literature framed by our own Resilience Framework (www.boingboing.org.uk). This framework draws on five key components of resilience that prior reviews and research have identified as crucial to young people's wellbeing and personal development - these are Basics, Belonging, Learning, Coping and Core Self. These core concepts helped identify some key resilience benefits of visual arts interventions. Finally, some of the limitations of this study are considered and we make recommendations on further and more indepth, longitudinal research on this subject.
