It has been proven that resilience has can be cultivated through environmental interaction processes. In Taiwan, children's and juvenile social welfare residential settings are facing the challenge of provided more active and professional service, and developing teenagers' independent living ability to withstand adverse circumstances. The research goals of this study are to implement resilience cultivation with a residential group through collaborative action, as well as to generalize the implementation conditions and affecting factors. The action was carried out at Taitung County Telay Girls' Home of Good-Shepherd Social Welfare Services Foundation, a teenage girls' residential setting in east Taiwan, from June 2008 to December 2010. Through 4 phases of action cycles, the following results have been found. The process of teenage girls' resilience cultivation is an unstable but continually advancing process. It is also a mutual interactive development process between social workers and girls. The cultivation of individual protective factors should utilize relationships and environmental protective factors at the same time. Social workers should have professional skill competence, the ability to act as mature role models, and commitment to the professional values of social work. In addition, an organization shift is required, involving the redistribution of manpower and resources, and the change of the culture and philosophy of the residential professional group. The key elements that influence success or failure are the management capability and persistent faith of the chief manager, as well as the support of the upper stratum in the organization.
