Resilience helps us recover from negative events or feelings, cope with challenges and adversity, and look after ourselves when things are not going well. It is not possible to protect children from the ups and downs of life. Raising resilient children, however, is possible and can provide them with tools to respond to the challenges of life. Parents have the biggest role to play in helping their children to develop resilience. However, research tells us that among the most influential positive models in the lives of resilient children, outside the family circle, are educators.
Providing the support that children need to build skills in this area is one of the most important and challenging tasks of the early childhood years. This workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of what resilience is, how it develops, and the key role of educators in building resilience in children.
