Promoting Resilience in Adults
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 who cares for them.
We have a number of resources available for adults, including Building Your Bounce and the Devereux Adult Resilience Survey (DARS). We encourage you to look at our resources to learn more about the importance of taking time to build your own resilience so that you can better support those around you.
