Resiliency

Resiliency is the capacity to overcome adversity by responding in healthy and productive ways to successfully meet life’s challenges. This ability to recover quickly from setbacks and disruptive change enable individuals to achieve positive developmental outcomes, sustain their well-being, and thrive. In a world with stress all around us, resiliency is clearly important for enriching the lives of all youth.

Resilient youth possess a common set of developmental assets or “internal protective factors” that can be grouped into four internal building blocks of resiliency.

All youth have a capacity for resiliency that can grow or decline over time. Schools, families, and communities have an opportunity to create and support the conditions needed to foster resiliency in our youth. Links to school and community resources can be found under the tabs along the right side of this page.
