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. Our partnership with Aperture Education brings social and emotional learning and resilience to school-age children. We are also excited to share our resources for promoting resilience in vulnerable children and families at YourJourneyTogether.org, as well as for dealing with challenging behavior in children at MoreFLIPIT.org.
The Road to Trauma-Informed Care

Join the DCRC Book Club
One of the items on the Devereux Adult Resilience Survey (DARS) is, “I seek out new knowledge.” The DCRC team has committed to putting a strategy in place for this item, resulting in the formation of the DCRC Book Club. We want to share a little bit about the books that we have read and invite you to join our club! If you’d like to join, just click below to email us.
