CONCLUSIONS: While a number of evaluations of relevant programmes have been published, the quality of these evaluations limits our ability to determine if resilience-building programmes 'work' in terms of preventing negative outcomes such as depression, symptoms of post-traumatic stress and diagnoses of PTSD.

This is the “4 P” formulation, and it’s one that’s often used in mental health (Bolton, 2014). In the 4 P model, there are four questions to ask yourself: Preconditions – Why is this person vulnerable to this problem?Precipitating factors – Why now? This can mean “why is this person having symptoms now?” or “why is this person presenting to this person ...
