Building stronger, more resilient school communities
Research tells us that parents and caregivers are the most important factor in determining the long-term health, educational, and economic outcomes for students who experience early loss and adversity. Our Resilient Parenting program empowers caregivers with research-informed practices that can enhance their capacity to guide their child through adversity now and in the future.
Resilient Parenting education workshops range in length from 1-hour to full-day trainings. We help caregivers understand how adversity, loss, and trauma shape the behaviors, learning, relationships, and wellbeing of children and adolescents. We then equip trainees with language, tools, and a sense of self-confidence in their capacity to raise more resilient children.
Parent education workshops are typically 1 to 2 hours in length and take place on weekday evenings to accommodate work schedules. They can be delivered virtually or in person (dependent on your location).
