Friday Night Live: Fill Your Pitcher Before You Pour! Promoting Adult Resilience

Teaching young children can bring great joy and satisfaction as well as tremendous stress. Teachers who feel stressed, tired and overwhelmed are at risk for burn out and are challenged to provide high quality care. The connection between teacher well-being and children’s healthy development is explored in this session that focuses on adult resilience. Resilience is defined as “the ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortunate or change.” A resilient individual experiences challenges, but has learned the skills, habits and behaviors to buffer these risks and move forward. In this session, participants will learn about four research-based areas that are essential for adult resilience: (1) Healthy relationships; (2) Self-regulation; (3) Initiative and (4) Internal Beliefs. These four areas of resilience (called protective factors) are examined and strategies shared. Participants will walk away learning how to incorporate small changes into their daily routines that emphasize self-care.
