BBC Radio 5 Live Debate: 'Can Young People Cope in the Spotlight?'

June 2013

I discussed on 'Radio 5 Live' on the day of the final of ITV1's  'Britain's  Got Talent' whether young people and children are resilient enough to cope with the stress and inevitable disappointments of not winning.  There is an interesting psychological literature on how different people, and people of different ages, are able to cope with disappointment and whether you can prepare for this to make you more resilient.
