icon_parent-info-largeThe aim of this presentation is to look at “Resilience”, what resilience is, what essential skills are needed and how parents can help.

  • Brainstorm “What is resilience?”
  • Reasons why has it become harder for our children to bounce back after set-backs (e.g. overprotection, perfectionism, too many choices etc.)
  • How resilience works as a protective factor against anxiety and depression
  • skills that young people need to be resilient (e.g. positive thinking, dealing, emotional awareness, courage, planning ahead, connectness and reaching out etc.)
  • Tips for parents to be Resilience Coaches at home (e.g. realistic goal setting, don’t overprotect, failure can lead to success etc.)
  • Resilience Scenarios and discussion
