Our visual approach films one Day in the Life (DITL) of thriving participants at different periods of development over the lifespan (Gillen & Cameron, 2010; Italian translation, 2015; Brazilian adaptation, 2018) and in diverse locations around the globe. We have visual DITL records for seven thriving toddlers (30-month-olds). We have studied eleven children in successful transition to school (five- to seven-year-olds). We have filmed and reported on the Days of eight resilient migrant adolescents (13- to 15- year-olds); and six older adults (over 80-years-of-age) who are living independently at home). The films are supported by individual interviews with participants and members of their families and follow-through exchanges with participants when and wherever possible.
