    This workbook aims to help leaders in social work contexts to create a workplace climate that builds the capacity for resilience. It draws on established research findings, together with learning developed from interviews, workshops and seminars with groups of social workers and leaders. It provides a range of evidence-informed practical interventions and ‘quick wins’, as well as more in-depth strategies, to foster the conditions that have been shown to underpin resilience at individual, team and organisational levels.
