Children are faced with an overwhelming amount of stress. As a result of this stress, children either indulge in unhealthy behaviors or become helpless. This workshop offers effective coping strategies for facing stress related to academic performance, high achievement standards, social media, peer pressure and family tension. 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. 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 that encourage leading therapy with self-empowerment and mindfulness.
