A Guide to Promoting Resilience in Children: Strengthening the Human Spirit = Guia de Promocion de la Resiliencia en los Ninos para Fortalecer el Espiritu Humano.
Grotberg, Edith H.
Resilience is an important trait because it is the human capacity to face, overcome, be strengthened by, and even transformed by the adversities of life. This guide provides ways to promote resilience in children and help them learn to improve many aspects of their own resilience. The guide is centered on three features, or sources, of resilience: "I HAVE,""I AM," and "I CAN." The guide presents a framework for the development of children, offering resilience features on each age and examples of actions that do and do not promote resilience, according to the following age ranges: (1) birth through 3 years; (2) 4 through 7 years; and (3) 8 through 11 years. Four appendices provide examples of the three sources of resilience (I HAVE, I AM, and I CAN), ways to think about resilience, a form for feedback, and a comment sheet on how the guide was used. The Spanish version is attached. Contains 26 references. (AP)
