Supportive Relationships and Active Skill-Building Strengthen the Foundations of Resilience. Working Paper 13
National Scientific Council on the Developing Child
Science shows that children who do well despite serious hardship have had at least one stable and committed relationship with a supportive adult. These relationships buffer children from developmental disruption and help them develop "resilience," or the set of skills needed to respond to adversity and thrive. This working paper from the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child explains how protective factors in a child's social environment and body interact to produce resilience, and discusses strategies that promote healthy development in the face of trauma.
