Raising Resilient Children

Raising Resilient Children:

Approaches from Positive Psychology

 Resilience is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. We need to equip them with the skills they need to flourish and thrive in spite of the many challenges and obstacles that life will throw at them. Research shows that a number of protective factors, including the presence of ‘one good adult’ can help to build resilience in children. Harnessing the power of positive emotions and learning to deal with negative emotions are also key factors. Teaching children skills such as healthy distraction and helpful self-talk is also a powerful way to develop resilience.

Objectives and Outcomes:
Explore research on protective factors for building children’s resilience
Outline a number of skills for building resilience
