Webinar: Promoting Resilience and Hope in Times of Trauma

In times of crisis, how can we cultivate resilience for children and educators? And what does it even mean to be resilient? In a time of heightened misfortune and change, a framework for thinking about resilience can help us organize our thinking and educational practice.

In this webinar Rachel Wagner, MSW - Devereux Center for Resilient Children, will present us with a framework for understanding resilience and help us build our “resilience lens” by introducing three ways we can buffer or protect children from the adverse outcomes associated with adversity.


This webinar took place on July 29, 2020.
