Resilience is the ability to adapt despite challenges faced in life. There is now an accumulation of 50 years of longitudinal research identifying multiple factors and influences that help individuals thrive despite adversity. The good news is that parents and teachers can do much to promote the set of skills that enhance resilience -- across multiple settings and multiple ethnicities. This presentation will describe pertinent research and provide practical suggestions and strategies for building resilience in families and classrooms.
