Responsive Resilience

26 Sep

Over the past couple of years in the school division that I have the pleasure of working in and for, we have incorporated a Youth Resiliency Initiative. This initiative is intended to build health and wellness in schools and communities through capacity building, programs and partnerships. As well, strategies are being developed to build and support a more equitable foundations for resiliency in our students.

The September 2013 Education Leadership magazine is completely dedicated to this topic of Resilience and Learning and of the many informative articles, Sara Truebridge and Bonnie Benard’s “Reflection on Resilience” gives a wonderful snapshot of the work that is occuring in our school division with this initiative.


As well, if you have time set aside, Sara Truebridge’s keynote from the Whole Child Virtual Conference is available.
