Resilience
Resilience in ChildrenWhen children show healthy development in spite of adversity, it is called resilience. The elements that foster good development in adversity and in milder conditions are similar. Children need to be fed, protected and stimulated; just as they need to establish the early interpersonal relationships that are the foundations for cognitive, affective and neurobiological adaptation. Through their relationships, young children learn to regulate their emotions, an important skill to deal with adversity, and to develop self-esteem, self-efficacy and coping abilities.
