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 school-age, as well as to promote the resilience of the adults who care for them. We accomplish this by doing research and producing resources for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and adults. And our partnership with Aperture Education brings social and emotional learning and resilience to school-age children.

Why Resilience?

We hope that you can take some time to reflect on the happenings of the last few months, just as we have in this fall’s edition of The Resilience QuarterlyEnjoy!
