Building Children’s Resilience: Early intervention and strengths practice.

Dr Angela Cowan , Leeanne Toomey

Traumatic experiences such as domestic violence, grief and loss or parental mental illness can negatively impact on children's cognitive, physical, social, emotional and academic functioning (Paolucci, Genuis, & Violato, 2001). Research recommends that professionals build resiliency skills in children to help them develop protective thinking and behaviours to manage stress and trauma (Berson & Baggerley 2009). This paper overviews best practice in helping children living in adverse circumstances and presents examples of two strengths based interventions that foster resiliency in young children, engaged in a regional early intervention program. Experiences in this practice setting indicate that the interplay of children's strengths and resilience enhancing intervention strategies can empower young children experiencing stress.
