Enhancing Resilience in Children Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics: Advanced Specialized Care ,
Sponsor: Child Care Resource
Instructor: Dr. Steve Atkins, Psy.D.

How it is some young people adjust and function better when compared to others dealing with life stressors? What is resiliency and what are ways to help children develop the life skills that will equip them to grow and flourish? Psychologists, other mental health professionals and child care professionals can play a key role in helping children understand the concept of resilience and “grit” when living through difficult situations and/or traumatic events. Attendees will leave the presentation with a better understanding of what resiliency means, as well as ways to enhance their skills when working with children. Concrete clinical examples will be offered as options for professionals to use and add into their “tool box” for child care approaches.
