It’s well known that success in life, school and work have a lot to do with showing up, working hard, and being persistent. But what happens when things aren’t successful...they don’t go as planned...roadblocks pop up at every turn? Are you someone who gets up, bounces back and finds the resilience to try again? Meeting failure with resilience is not a trait one is born with, but rather one that is developed over time with practice and patience. Resilient people are determined, can push through challenges, and can adapt to adversity. So, the question becomes: how does one build resilience and how can we help our kids be resilient in the face of life’s little and big challenges? Resilience is developed through struggle, hardship and failure. This video provides both child-serving professionals in education and mental health, and parents with the understanding and tools they need to provide children and adolescents with the skills they need to learn from failure and bounce back for future success. Read More Resilience is all about the grey matter in our brains. Learn from the presenters about grey matter, the part of the brain that processes perception, memory, speech, decision-making, impulse control and self-awareness. The more grey matter you have, the more capacity you have to effectively process your response to stress and/or the failure. By understanding what builds the brain’s grey matter one can build resilience in children, adolescents, and young adults. This video does an excellent job of helping teachers, parents, clinicians and youth workers build resilience in others as well as themselves. This is a critical tool for everyone in the helping professions, teachers and parents to have in their toolbox to make a difference in the lives of others and themselves.
