Building Resilience for Adults who work with Children and Youth (BH04)

This course will build upon our previous course addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). You do not need to have taken the ACEs course to understand this material, though the ACEs course may provide context as to why resilience is particularly important. This course will explain what resilience is, describe some foundational elements of internal resilience in adulthood, and provide opportunities to explore each of these elements in your own life. Building your own capacity for resilience is one of the best ways to support the resilience of the children and youth you work with.

Those who complete the course will be eligible to receive 2 STARS credits, which can be used to meet OSPI clock hours continuing education requirements. STARS credits will be provided for FREE for a limited time as a service to child care providers as they deal with the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic.
