A Short Introduction to Promoting Resilience in Children
An accessible and clear guide to promoting resilience & achieving positive outcomes.
A child's capacity to cope with adversity and 'stand on their own two feet' is critical to their development, well-being, and future independence. Psychological strength, or resilience, directly affects a child's capacity to cope with adversity. This succinct guide shows how to promote resilience and avoid conflict. Three key factors that affect resiliency are discussed: vulnerability to stress and anxiety; attachment relationships; and access to basic needs. Practical advice and strategies are explored, including how to regulate children's stress and anxiety; how to encourage and maintain secure attachments, and how to assure children that their needs are understood and will be met. An invaluable resource for carers and professionals alike.
