One of the biggest predictors of success is having someone in your life that cares about you succeeding. As young people develop, they continue to adapt to life and even adversity in a way that helps them to grow. Oftentimes, we pathologize these adaptations while disregarding the power of resilience. Resilience is the ability to rebound and withstand disruptive life challenges. It involves dynamic processes which foster a positive adaptation in the context of a significant adversity. When we bear witness, it can and often does have a profound effect on us, as providers. Supporting the positive development of young people requires us to focus on strengths and support their resilience. This webinar is an opportunity to strengthen your own skills on becoming a resiliency-focused provider and begin to use this perspective in all of your work with young people.
