Dr. Michael Ungar – Resilience: Nine things kids need from their families, schools, and communities

Published on Jul 3, 2015

In May 2015, Dr. Michael Ungar shared what he has learned about resilience from young people around the world, that resilience depends on more than a young person’s individual capacity to overcome challenges. Resilience is also the ability of young people’s parents, teachers, mentors and other caregivers to successfully help youth navigate and negotiate for the supports they need to thrive. Troubling behaviors can be addressed by providing young people with nine sources of resilience: structure, consequences, parent-child connections, strong relationships with peers and adults, a powerful identity, a sense of control, a sense of belonging, spirituality and life purpose, fair and just treatment, and the safety and support children need to cope when problems overwhelm them. This event was part of the Circle of Learning Parent Academy offered by SCDSB’s Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) and made possible with the support of a Ministry of Education Parents Reaching Out grant.
