In our work with young children, we have many opportunities to build resilience. Building solid relationships is one of key ways that parents, caregivers, and professionals can help children cope with stress in their lives while building a sense of mastery. This webinar will discuss the basics of building resilience. It will also give some practical ways to infuse this research into our caring for and working with children.
