What is it that enables some people to experience a “positive adaptation” in the face of highly stressful, life-situations? This 5-hour workshop will examine the concept of “resilience”, a protective process that enables us to reach positive outcomes in the face of significant adversities. While resilience is a dynamic process that reaches across the lifespan, special emphasis will be given to examining resilience in children and adolescents. This foundational workshop will explore current research and practical applications.
As a result of this training, participants will have:
1. Compared and contrasted definitions of Resilience;
2. Summarized, in small group sessions, Resilience research in four areas;
3. Identified various Risk & Protective Factors in four domains;
4. Dissected 2 models of a resilience approach in working with young people; and,
5. Applied Resilience Principles to specific case studies.
This workshop is intended for behavioral health providers who work with children, families and communities. There are no prerequisites for this program.
