Overcoming adversity

Join us for an enlightening discussion with leading experts on the topic of overcoming adversity. Dr. Carolina Guzman Holst will delve into the complexities linking bullying and mental health in children and young people. Following this, Professor Shelley McKeown Jones will unravel the latest research findings and insights on overcoming prejudice and improving intergroup relationships in diverse and conflict settings.

From Cradle to Consciousness: Navigating mental health across the developmental spectrum

Dr Carolina Guzman Holst (Postdoctoral Researcher)
This talk will explore the relationship between bullying and mental health in children and young people including what risk factors, protective factors and mechanisms influence this relationship. The second part of this talk will then focus on the impact of school anti-bullying interventions and their role in reducing mental health problems, including recent evidence suggesting a ‘health context paradox’ effect.

Tackling prejudice through social interactions: what do we know and where do we go from here?

Shelley McKeown Jones (Professor of Social Psychology in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford)
Prejudice is a pervasive problem, affecting individuals and societies locally, nationally and internationally.
Understanding how to best reduce prejudice is vital, not only for building more cohesive communities but also for promoting individual success. In this talk, I will discuss the potential power of facilitating positive and meaningful social interactions between ethno-national groups as a way to tackle prejudice ‘on the ground’. Drawing on my research in socially divided contexts, I will take a critical perspective to address under what conditions group-based social interactions can benefit individuals and societies as well as how they might best be promoted in educational and community settings.
