The BOUNCE programme aims to strengthen youngsters’ resilience as a means to prevent violent radicalisation. The underlying assumptions are that (1) personal resilience can be trained through group-based youth interventions, by means of cognitive-behavioural working methods ; and that (2) increased personal resilience will lower youngsters’ susceptibility for violent extremism. [...]
With radicalisation being a current policy priority in European countries, policy-makers are eager to jump upon the next buzzword in the field when it promises to prevent violent extremism. It is needed to distinguish all available programmes and evaluate their effectivity. However, scientific evidence upon the effectivity of resilience training is poorly available, as will be shown below in the report. The present study aims to contribute to scientific findings of resilience trainings. It will also establish recommendations for the continuation and practical implementation of the BOUNCE project, both for policy-makers as well as for youth work practitioners. [...]
[General introduction, p. 4]
The BOUNCE programme is an early prevention programme that aims to strengthen youngsters’ personal resilience, self-awareness and social skills. The underlying assumption is that youngsters with higher personal resilience will be less susceptible for internalising and/or externalising conditions.
BOUNCE consists of three interconnected tools : the BOUNCE Young tool (a 10-session training for youngsters, targeted at strengthening their personal resilience), the BOUNCE Along tool (an open training for parents, teachers and first-line workers, aimed at strengthening their awareness towards youngsters, prevention and resilience), and the BOUNCE Up tool (a train-the-trainer tool for first-line workers, teaching them how to work with the BOUNCE Young and BOUNCE Along tools).
The current pilot project consisted of 10 BOUNCE Up trainings in European cities. It was subjected to an independent scientific evaluation with the aim of optimising its training approach and, more broadly, with the aim of finding promising practices of resilience trainings in general. This report provides a summary of the complete research process and the short-term results. Extensive data was collected through training observations, quantitative questionnaires and semi-structured interviews with participants as well as trainers. Thematic analysis was conducted to describe the theoretical assumptions of the BOUNCE programme, the training processes of BOUNCE Up and the short-term outcomes of the present pilot project.
Whereas the BOUNCE Up training was highly appreciated by participants, practical implementation of the BOUNCE tools was low up to at least six months after the first training. As any social crime prevention, BOUNCE should be embedded into local prevention strategies. Moreover, durable implementation should include long-term evaluation of all BOUNCE actions. The present study has delivered a long-term BOUNCE Up evaluation tool, allowing cities to register their own actions with BOUNCE. Outcome data from this tool may inform future decision-making on social crime prevention in the city. The present study also provides in concrete recommendations for practitioners and policy-makers and for future research.
