Promoting Resilience in Children and Families:
A Developmental Perspective
Resilience in children (and adults) is often considered – a protective factor, inherent to the individual – a biologically fixed trait or characteristic – an attribute we either possess or don’t. This webinar will challenge this common assumption – and instead define resilience as a developmental capacity or byproduct of our earliest relationships. Using this developmental perspective we will then discuss how home visitors promote and enhance resilience in both children and parents.
