Uncertain Legacies: Resilience and Institutional Child Abuse - A Literature Review

This literature review sought to identify definitions of resilience and the factors associated with increasing resilience in survivors of institutional child abuse.


The author would like to thank the supervisory team at the Scottish Government for all their guidance and support, and in particular Professor Thanos Karatzias of Edinburgh Napier University for his generous help and advice throughout this review. Thanks also to the independent peer reviewer for their constructive input during the final stages.
