Curriculum resources for post-secondary schools
Resilience is the ability to recover from difficulties or change—to function as well as before and then move forward. Many people refer to this as "bouncing back" from difficulties or challenges.
People who are resilient can effectively cope with, or adapt to, stress and challenging life situations. They learn from the experience of being able to effectively manage in one situation, making them better able to cope with stresses and challenges in future situations. In other words, dealing with challenges can make us grow and can make us stronger. Rather than merely bouncing back, we're better prepared than we were before to face challenges that lie ahead.
- The Reaching In . . . Reaching Out: Promoting Resilience in Young Children curriculum modules were developed for faculty of early childhood education programs in colleges and universities. The modules include instructor notes and suggestions for student activities.
