What you’ll learn

“Resilient children can resist adversity, cope with uncertainty and recover more successfully from traumatic events or episodes.”  (Newham, 2002)

This introductory one-day course helps you understand why resilience matters and how to develop it in children and young people and the systems around them.

By the end of the course, you’ll:

  • understand what resilience is and the theories behind it
  • understand the relationship between risk, protective factors and resilience
  • learn practical ways to build resilience in the young people you work with
  • be more able to find resilience in yourself, your workplace and networks
  • learn how to connect children and young people with activities that will help them to be more resilient
  • be inspired to implement resilient practice in your setting
Inspiring, enjoyable and full of good ideas

Why take the course?

Half of all mental health problems present in young people by the age of 14, and according to our recent survey of 7,083 young people, over half said the first place they would turn for support would be a teacher, or another person in their school.

Being able to cope, despite experiencing traumatic events, is at the heart of resilience. The adults around a young person can play a vital role in developing their resilience and preventing their needs from escalating.
