Transitioning and Thriving: Cross-cultural Pathways of Resilience in Deaf Youth
The ability to bounce back, thwart challenges, and even thrive in the face of circumstantial adversity is defined as resilience by some scholars. Yet little is known about how deaf youth are resilient. The proposed transformative mixed methods study investigates the unique/common ways in which deaf people from different cultures are resilient. Findings will be used as a platform for future research, and may be utilized to help inform policy and programs to support the potential of individual maximization.
