I am currently studying towards my Master's degree in Applied Positive Psychology. My area of research focuses on how communities can better protect historically disadvantaged young men and women against violence., instead of only focusing on the risk factors in their community. The specific protection resources needed are voiced by the young adults themselves. Advocacy processes are activated between these young adults and their community in order to effectively negotiate for the needed protective resources. I believe that this is resilience and positive psychology in action.
