Children are faced with an overwhelming amount of stress. As a result of this stress, children either indulge in unhealthy behaviors or become helpless. Building resilience in children encourages focusing on natural strengths, fostering hope and optimism, avoiding risky behaviors and improving self-esteem and self-perception. In particular, this course will focus on the seven “C’s” needed for bouncing back from adversity: Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character, Contribution, Coping and Control. In addition, this workshop will provide an overview of child centered play therapy and the impact of structure, communication, empathy, leadership and trust. Upon competition of this course, providers will acquire a better understanding of the importance of building resilience in children and will learn the proper use of therapeutic tools and interventions.
