    Resilience - Filing Children's Backpacks with the Tools and Support needed to overcome Adversity.

    Why is it that some youth are able to adapt to adverse experiences better than others?  What role does being resilient play in the educational setting?  How can educators help a child become more resilient? This course will give an overview of the research behind resilience and the role it plays in education.  Building resilience is more than teaching character education; it is setting a foundation which will allow character education curricula to be built upon.  Participants will leave with strategies of how to build resilience in their classrooms and throughout the campus.  

    The train-the-trainer session is ideal for school-based leadership teams. Participants will learn the content and be equipped with strategies and resources to train others.

    Registrations will not be accepted after Friday – 01/13/17.
