Resiliency: Bouncing Back in the Face of Adversity

He also serves as Director of Health Services at Covenant House Pennsylvania, an agency that serves Philadelphia’s youth enduring homelessness.
His research over the last 30 years has focused on facilitating youth to develop their own solutions to social problems and to teach clinicians how to better serve them. He co-developed the Teen-Centered Method, a mixed qualitative/quantitative methodology that enables youth to generate, prioritize, and explain their own ideas.
