Course Description

I have often described resilience as the ability to be in a storm and not get drenched. Adversity and hardship cannot be avoided, the key is how we manage in the face the adversity. In this webinar, you will gain a deeper understanding of resilience, learn about some of the barriers to resilience and ways to foster resilience in latency-aged children. You will leave the webinar with strategies and tools you can use with the children you work with to assist them to cope with adversity and thrive

Learning Outcome

At the end of this webinar Child and Youth Care Practitioners working with latency-aged children will be able to:

  1. Analyse the impact of low resilience on latency-aged children.
  2. Recognize why resilience is important to the development of children.
  3. Discuss the harm in eliminating all risks children face.
  4. Examine ways to teach children to problem-solve.

Who Should Attend?

Any CYC practitioner working with latency-aged children and seeking to help them cope with adversity and thrive.
