Building resilience

We may have heard the word ‘resilience’ being applied to the children we care for and how this is important for their overall wellbeing and development. Resilience is our ability to ‘bounce back’ or somehow return to ‘normal’ after a traumatic or frightening event. What often isn’t mentioned when we discuss resilience is how we actually build resilience in children and young people. Below you will find some great links that can help you to understand the importance of resilience and the programs and information available to assist you in promoting and developing this within your family.
