Resilience involves the capacity to respond to and recover from adversity. Resilient children are aware that set-backs are inevitable and have the confidence that obstacles can be confronted effectively by applying their coping skills.

For well over one year now, we have all been immersed in the unprecedented stresses brought on by living with Covid-19, school closings, financial crisis, political divisiveness, racial tensions, and gender inequalities, as well as other individual and collective challenges, leaving many children at risk for compromised academic, behavioral, and social functioning.

School mental health professionals are uniquely qualified to respond to the mental health needs of the school community. Promoting school policies, programs, and staff training, aimed at fostering resilience and stability enables children to cope with the challenges they face.

This conference and the 12 session seminar series provide an in depth exploration of various ways that our schools can encourage students to be more resilient. Resilience is built up over time. It includes a number of skills that can be taught and nurtured in a supportive educational environment.

Instructors in this series are clinicians, writers and researchers with expertise in developing interventions that focus on nurturing and enhancing students’ resilience. They will discuss: the importance of play in the development of resilience; counseling strategies; work with special needs children; resilience and issues of diversity; and actual classroom-based, empathy building programs all of which have relevance to the daily work of school mental health professionals.

Participants are encouraged to prepare case material to discuss with the instructors and with their colleagues.
