Course Background:

Children are neither born with or without emotional resilience, it is developed as they negotiate childhood and adolescence and all adults working with children and young people need to ensure they can actively contribute to positive resilience building to equip young people with these skills for life. This course is aimed at anyone working with children and young people who see their role as one which helps young people develop resilience; for example: youth workers, school nurses, children centre staff, teachers, residential care staff, sports workers, uniformed services etc.
