Doctoral thesis

A psychosocial exploration of the lifelong impact of being in care as a child and resilience over a life span.

Research methods combined a life span approach to explore the lived
experience pre-care, in-care and post-care, in combination with a grounded
theory approach to integrate the participants’ constructions of their resilience
with the data. A psycho-social approach was utilised to address current
deficits such as perceiving the environment and the individual as largely
separate spheres, which created the ability to move beyond this separation
and to look at the ways in which the internal and external worlds constantly
affect each other. Employing psychoanalytic theory around trauma in the
analysis facilitated a deeper understanding of how individuals manage
traumatic experience
