Friday Night Live: Pack Resilience in the Suitcase! Promoting Resilience in Young Children Birth through Five

Young children take their early experiences with them for the rest of life’s journey. We can help pack children’s suitcases with all the essential skills and tools they will need. We can put protective factors in the suitcase by focusing on resilience. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from change and misfortune. Research tells us that resilience is increased when children have: (1) Healthy relationships; (2) Self-regulation; and (3) Initiative—three key protective factors. When children have healthy initiative, self-regulation and attachments, they are more likely to be successful in school and life. A child with protective factors will also engage in fewer challenging behaviors. Participants will leave this session empowered with the knowledge and skills to set children up for success in school and life. Participants will gain a better understanding of resilience and how to ensure children have protective factors packed in their suitcase.
