Raising a Resilient and Resourceful Youth

Raising a Resilient and Resourceful Youth focuses on helping parents of youth in Grades 4-9 understand what social science research has uncovered regarding the key protective factors necessary to develop their positive capacity to cope with stress and adversity. Participants will discover what the four key protective factors are, and four critical moves parents can make to build resiliency and resourcefulness within their youth. What resilient-boosting schools look like will be reviewed. The session includes 10 important resiliency skills presented with an opportunity for parents to set goals so they leave the workshop with a clear steps to build resiliency within their family. The format of the workshop includes a presentation, video clips, small break out group exercises, and large group discussions. Feedback from parents about this workshop include that they have a greater sense of hope and a clearer understanding of the action steps required to support their youth’s mental wellness through resiliency building.
