    Abstract

    THERON, Linda  and  DUNN, Nadine. Enabling white, Afrikaans-speaking adolescents towards post-divorce resilience: implications for educators. S. Afr. j. educ. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.2, pp. 231-244. ISSN 0256-0100.

    Using rich qualitative data, we describe the ecosystemically-embedded protective antecedents that enabled 10 white, Afrikaans-speaking adolescents from divorced families towards resilience. The description both confirms and extends what was known about the roots of adolescent resilience, post-divorce. We use these findings to capacitate educators who are mandated to care for needy learners, such as those from divorced homes. The findings provide more than mere implications for educators - given their simplicity, they make it possible for educators to make the most of these to champion resilience.

    Keywords : adolescence; divorce; ecosystemic; protective resources; qualitative; resilience.
