Resilience is the ability to bounce back from life's difficulties and do well despite adversity. Forty years of research indicates that resilience has a significant impact on our physical and mental health. The good news is that resilience can be learnt! Resiliency skills and strategies can be absorbed by children from an early age. Children as young as two years can mimic the thinking styles and coping behaviour of the adults around them.
Attached are resources to support adults in developing their own resilience and that of children, including those following the amazing talk given by Ana da Cunha Lewin, Programme Director at Birkbeck College, University of London.
