Promoting Resilience in Adults
In addition to our infant/toddler and preschooler initiatives, we also focus on promoting the health and well-being of all adults who parent, nurture, and/or work with young children through a focus on adult resilience. The critical connection between children’s resilience and the health and wellness of the adults in those children’s lives cannot be underestimated. DCRC began this initiative in response to the growing understanding and appreciation that promoting children’s resilience depends significantly on the resilience of the adults who care for them.
We have a number of resources available for adults, including Building Your Bounce: Simple Strategies for a Resilient You, the Devereux Adult Resilience Survey (DARS) – in both English and Spanish – and more!
