Nurturing Resilience in Kids and Teens
Nurturing resilience is not something everyone has learned how to do. If kids are having a hard time we often turn to our doctors first. Doctors will too often prescribe psychiatric medications for anxiety or depression and for kids who are easily distracted. Consider what our children are paying attention to: Kids and Teens are being bombarded by social media and screen time of various kinds. These often nurture social competition and consumerism. This short presentation suggests how we can help our youth by nurturing resilience and creativity–qualities that will help them thrive in a rapidly changing world. Too many kids are on psychiatric medications needlessly. Consider the alternatives. We’ve gathered the best videos, articles, a musical interlude and cartoons–for information and reflection.

This course hit home for me. On a mission to learn through academic study to be a more effective care provider, I was starting to lose my own health, wellbeing and ability to be present for the people who I am charged to care for. This course provided me an opportunity to relax and witness just why mindfulness is key to health, wellbeing, and caring for one another. The studies were carefully curated and presented with humor and lightness of touch that made the course fun and memorable while supported by clear science.
