Rubber Bands and Umbrellas! 5 Practical Strategies for Helping Parents Understand Risk Factors, Protective Factors and Resilience
Fully understanding the concepts of risk factors, protective factors, and resilience can serve as a powerful catalyst for helping each of us navigate life's challenges. But all too often, the use of jargon and unfamiliar language can get in the way of individuals making true meaning of these terms. We would like to change that! Parents, families, teachers, and anyone interested in learning more are invited to this interactive, reflective learning experience. Join Dr. Nefertiti Poyner, as we uncover some of the key terms often found in the resilience research. We will define those key terms and think about what each word means to us, individually. Grab a few rubber bands and don't forget your umbrella! Invite a friend and let's learn together.
