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.

Importance of Resilience

Resilience-Building in the Field

The Latest at DCRC

Resilience Quarterly, Fall 2021

Continued celebration of the 10th anniversary of FLIP IT, World Kindness Day and how our team celebrated, an article from Director Susan Damico, upcoming events headed into the new year, preparing for the holiday season, and an announcement for our e-DECA users…so much to see in our quarterly newsletter!

Director Susan Damico featured in Authority Magazine

DCRC Director Susan Damico, M.A., was recently featured in Authority Magazine. In her article, Susan shares how we can all live with joy, even when it feels like everything is pulling and bringing you down. She touches on the connection between joy and resilience, and talks about the fact that “we can decide that we will choose to cultivate habits, behaviors, thoughts, and skills that elevate our day-to-day happiness.”

Resilience-Focused Change

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.
