In seeking to highlight the interconnectedness between GLM and positive psychology it soon became clear that there is a paucity of references, especially so in relation to the prevention of youth radicalisation. To end, I ask a number of questions: just how can we use the approach and ideas of the GLM and Positive Psychology to inform our work in relation to preventing radicalisation? What do we mean by a GLM and Positive Psychology informed research design? How best to work with reluctant and non-compliant clients? And, finally, how to realise the vision of the Radicalisation
Awareness Network (RAN, 2016) of using GLM Positive Psychology informed approaches in order to develop resilient identities of youth living in adverse environments across the EU so that they are enabled to meet the growing challenges of growing up and becoming active citizens?
