The Joining Forces for Children Early Childhood Channel “Messages of Hope” work group created 5 tip sheets for building resilience with children. These tip sheets outline easy, every day actions that help children build resiliency and develop strong, stable relationships. We know that creating safe, stable nurturing relationships are the key to helping kids overcome life’s challenges. Many parents and caregiver will find they’re already doing many of these things! The work group hopes these tip sheets will help parents and caregivers feel confident in helping children build resilience skills.
Thank you to Julie Herrmann MS, LPCC-S, who led the work group through this production process and continues to serve on the Joining Forces for Children Steering Committee.
CARE is an evidence-based universal approach to help any adult interacting with children or teens. It uses skills designed to enhance child-adult relationships and to reduce mild to moderate behavior problems. CARE is a trauma-informed training model for caregivers and professionals, paraprofessionals, and lay public who interact and work with children. CARE workshops actively build skills through discussion, demonstration, practice, and live coaching—all within a fun and engaging learning environment!
The International CARE (iCARE) Collaborative is a group of experts and all-around fun people who are excited to share the power of Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) with others. Visit the website for informational videos and trainings.
The first five years of a child’s life are a time of both great opportunity and vulnerability. Early
childhood lays the groundwork for physical, emotional, social and intellectual development later in life. The human brain grows more quickly during infancy and early childhood than at any other time. However, adverse environments and experiences during these early years can have a critical impact on development and subsequent functioning of the brain and biological systems, leading to lifelong threats to educational attainment and health.
