Building Your Bounce: Simple Strategies for a Resilient You
“Best booklet on adult resilience that I have seen. The resource is well organized and offers a good reading level for clients and caregivers. Award winning!” – Diana Gage, School Psychologist &Head Start Disabilities Coordinator (Lakeland, FL)
Research confirms the critical connection between the health and well-being of children and the adults caring for them. Because of this important link, it is essential that adults take care of themselves so that they are able to provide high quality care to the children in their lives. This journal is designed to meet adults where they are and take them to a place of greater strength and determination. Through reflective readings, activities, journaling and written responses, this book will uncover strategies for strengthening four areas related to resilience, including:
- Relationships: The mutual, long-lasting, back-and-forth bond we have with another person in our lives.
- Internal Beliefs: The feelings and thoughts we have about ourselves and our lives, and how effective we think we are at taking action in life.
- Initiative: The ability to make positive choices and decisions and act upon them.
- Self-Control: The ability to experience a range of feeling, and express them using the words and actions that society considers appropriate.
The strategies suggested in Building your Bounce: Simple Strategies for a Resilient You correspond to the reflective statements that comprise the Devereux Adult Resilience Survey (DARS), a 23-item reflective checklist that provides valuable information about a person’s strengths. This resource can be used by educators, teachers, parents and any adult looking to support their own resilience. Download a free copy of the DARS from the bottom of this page.
