Can Resilience Be Learned?

You bet.

Family, friends and community support can turn negative feelings, vengeance and hostility into resilience, coping and thriving.

Develop your capacity to forgive. Commit to letting go of resentment and thoughts of revenge.

Learn about worlds outside your own. Stop stereotypes. Unlearn negative or uninformed associations.

Combat bullying.

Children need adults who know how to promote resilience and are, indeed, becoming more resilient themselves. The language of resilience is: I HAVE, I AM, I CAN.
