Exploring Understanding of Risk and Protective Factors in Relation to Resilience Building for Children in Jakarta, Indonesia
Presenter: Emily Stapley (Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, UK)
Co-Authors: Evelyn Sharples, Jessica Deighton, Panos Vostanis
Introduction: Recent studies emphasise the importance of avoiding simply imposing western biomedical or psychological interventions, which are not sensitive to cultures and communities. Therefore, this project aimed to explore cultural and contextual differences in the understanding of resilience for children affected by trauma.
Methods: Data were collected during a one week field trip to Jakarta, Indonesia. Observational notes were taken at one care home and at a training session for care workers. A focus group was conducted with six 11-12 year olds where notes were taken with the assistance of a translator, and three semi-structured interviews were conducted with care workers attending the training session. Data were also collected from an online survey consisting of two open-ended questions taken by 121 psychology students attending a seminar. Theoretical thematic analysis was used to explore understanding of risk and protective factors and semantic themes identified. 
Findings: Identified risk and protective factors were identified to explore the convergences and divergences between Indonesian and British ideas and conceptualisation of risk and resilience.  Limitations of such a cross-culture scoping study have been noted. This research has implications for the universal nature of interventions and measures used.
