dc.description.abstractThis qualitative graduate-level study examines front-line community and social service professionals’ conceptualizations of resilience and the role of community and social support among survivors of trauma or adversity and individuals at-risk. A systematic review of recent literature on resilience and community and social support was employed to inform analysis of experiential data generated through in-depth interviews with ten community and social service professionals in central Ontario. Based on the hybrid thematic analysis of interview data, five themes were identified to illustrate front-line professionals’ conceptualizations of: i) resilience as a three-part construct; ii) secondary conceptual considerations; iii) the continuum of risk and protection; iv) community and social support; and, v) service design and approach considerations related to trauma-informed strengths-based approaches. Subsequent conclusions and recommendations regarding practical conceptualizations of resilience, the role of community and social support, and the incorporation of trauma-informed, resilience-building strengths-based strategies within community and social services are then presented.
