Resiliency is one of the most critical life skills we can teach children. In our fast-paced and increasingly stressful world, resiliency is more important than ever, but unfortunately, fewer and fewer children possess the ability to “bounce back” from stress and adversity.
Schools can play a key role in helping students develop the inner strength and flexibility they need to overcome the challenges they face. In this course, you will learn the key skills that make up resiliency and cultivate tools for guiding students toward a resilient mind-set. You’ll also assess your own resiliency and learn how to partner with parents to help build your students’ ability to cope with emotional and academic challenges. Finally, you’ll create strategies to help your school prioritize and implement resiliency education.
Using the techniques from this course, you’ll be able to teach your students emotional and social skills that will serve them well beyond your classroom.
