ROUTES TO RESILIENCE
Routes to Resilience is Good Grief’s social-emotional learning program that is based on over 15 years of education and programs, and draws heavily on current research to educate and empower children, families, and professionals to be prepared to navigate through loss and adversity.
Research shows that two primary factors help children to thrive in the face of loss and adversity:
The curriculum follows a progression of intentionally designed lesson plans with age-appropriate learning goals at each developmental milestone for children and teenagers around five primary themes:
2. Emotional Intelligence
3. Healthy Coping
4. Loss & Adversity
5. Supportive Relationships
WHERE CAN I USE ROUTES TO RESILIENCE?
Whether you are a school, healthcare organization, nonprofit, or other community agency, Routes to Resilience can be used in your community.
Our partners have implemented the curriculum in a variety of settings including health classes, peer mentorship or leadership groups, after school programs, and others.
The program is flexible to adapt to a variety of contexts.
PROFESSIONAL & PARENT EDUCATION
Resilience can be learned and cultivated. How professionals and parents engage and respond to children and teenagers through daily challenges matters. We help to guide and educate professionals and parents on strategies and practices to support the growth of a child’s resilience through adversities and challenges.
The primary goals of our training include:
- Provide overview and goals of the Routes to Resilience program.
- Increase awareness of the impact of loss and adversity on students.
- Explore the current social, emotional, and cultural challenges that inhibit resilience.
- Share strategies for supporting the development of resilience.
PRAISE FOR THE PROGRAM
“Routes to Resilience not only helped our district fill a gap in our curriculum around important SEL topics but the interactive nature of the lessons allowed our teachers and principals to connect with students on a deeper level. The high level of student engagement and heartfelt participation by our teachers was incredible! Our partnership with Good Grief and implementation of Routes to Resilience also helped us identify topics for upcoming professional development and even got us thinking about hosting parent sessions! We are excited to continue into year two!”
