Building resilience is a fundamental life skill that teaches young people how to cope and adapt to adversity, trauma and significant sources of stress. A primary factor in resilience is having caring and supportive relationships within and outside the family that create love and trust, provide role models and offer encouragement and reassurance. By teaching and modeling resilience, young people can learn to cope, adapt and thrive when facing challenges or significant stress throughout their lifetime.
