Welcome to the Devereux Center for Resilient Children (DCRC)
Our mission is to promote social and emotional development, foster resilience, and build skills for school and life success in children birth through preschool, as well as to promote the resilience of the adults who care for them. Our nationally standardized, strength-based assessments, strategy resources, and professional development are grounded in resilience research, and for over 20 years have been used by thousands of programs across the U.S. and internationally.

Celebrating 10 Years of FLIP IT
This November will mark 10 years since the publication of FLIP IT! Transforming Challenging Behavior, and we could not be more excited about it! One of the ideas in mind as part of our celebration is to gather stories from YOU. Share your FLIP IT story! Tell us about a time where you felt this strategy truly helped you and a child. Participants will be entered into a raffle to win a copy of the FLIP IT book autographed by author Rachel Wagner!
The FLIP IT Hybrid Experience
FLIP IT is an evidence-based strategy that offers a simple, kind, strengths-based, commonsense, and effective four step process for addressing young children’s day-to-day challenging behaviors. With this experience, you will be sitting down with FLIP IT author Rachel Wagner for two live webinar sessions, and in between the two, you will take part in the FLIP IT Online Course. Learn the FLIP IT strategy with the author by your side!
From our team to you and yours, we share with you our stance on the fight to end racism, and we stand alongside all those seeking to nurture resilience in children and families made vulnerable by systemic oppression. If you have not yet seen our team’s statement shared back in June 2020, we encourage you to read it now. Know that being resilience-focused in this moment means calling upon and nurturing protective factors within others and ourselves.
