Science and Case Studies

Intentional practice is underpinned by a scientific model (Life Buoyancy Model) designed, tested and refined through multiple working collaborations. The modelling and approach is drawn from:

  • Positive psychology science (including mindfulness).
  • Trauma-informed science.
  • Implementation science.

The following case studies, evaluation reports and journal articles document the applications and evidence supporting intentional practice (and growth-focused logic modelling). Collectively, they support the view that intentional practice can be applied as a methodology to:

  • Disentangle complexity.
  • Translate science to context.
  • Integrate multiple disciplines.
  • Bridge the ‘system’ to the ‘moment’ (or span system and practice).
