In the opening session, Celeste Simões presented an overview of the resilience projects conducted by the research group over the last 25 years.

For this final ENRETE project event in Portugal, we had the opportunity to integrate into its program the closure of another project also devoted to the promotion of socioemotional competencies, the project Endireita, which targets juvenile offenders. Related with this last project, three other moments were included in the multiplier event program: the presentation of the Endireita project, by Margarida Santos, a personal testimony of a prime example of resilience by Johnson Semedo that presented the speech “Resilience in the first person”, and the certificates attribution to the adolescents that participated in the project.
