LBI Foundation is focused on Translating Science Into Practice.
We do this by making the science of wellbeing, resilience, trauma-informed practice and growing individual and community capacity:
- Translatable, and
- Get traction at scale
To achieve this outcome, we draw upon the methodology of intentional practice. This method was developed by Dr Ivan Raymond within a PhD Program, but refined through numerous working collaborations. It is an approach that allows the science of wellbeing, resilience, trauma and growing human potential to be applied and get traction across:
- An entire agency
- Program design and implementation.
- Moment-to-moment supporting adult roles (teaching, caring, leadership, professional etc). This is captured in the IMPACT Program.
Intentional Practice is an umbrella term that refers to any intervention where the supporting adult (or program/institution) brings moment-to-moment awareness (or mindfulness) of the desired outcomes (“what”) and associated processes (“how”) within the intervention
LBI Foundation and Intentional Practice
LBI Foundation’s scientific programs are underpinned by the method of intentional practice. Through our work with individuals and communities we work:
- To develop specific tools and resources that respond to the needs of the community
- To evaluate, research and publish our work
- To collate our learnings, public tools and research on the website: www.lifebuoyancy.org
