When the child is the centre of positive communication, nurses and healthcare professionals engage in positive communication with the whole family when caring for children and young people. There is a growing trend to understanding families from a ˜family strengths framework’, to identify what families are doing well and what they can do to optimise positive outcomes. The family strengths framework is a positive approach to health care, looking at how families succeed and promote resilience. (Smith & Ford 2013 p.98)
The Bioecological Theory of Human Development is described as a process, person, context, time (P-P-C-T) model.
Explain each of the four components (P-P-C-T) and how they interact to strengthen resilience across the age span of 0 “ 24 years.
Identify and include in your discussion one journal article for each component of the bioecological model (P-P-C-T) that demonstrates evidence of how it influences child and youth outcomes.
Illustrate your discussion with examples of strengths during childhood that influenced health and well-being outcomes.
Propose strategies supported by research and the literature that that could be implemented in practice that demonstrate how the P-P-C-T model can promote resilience in Australian children and youth (aged 0-24). These strategies can be in any context influencing child and youth outcomes i.e. processes in the micro, meso, exo or macro systems and address any aspect of the P-P-C-T model.
