InBrief: Resilience Series

InBrief: Resilience Series

Reducing the effects of significant adversity on young children’s healthy development is

critical to the progress and prosperity of any society. Yet not all children experience lasting

harm as a result of adverse early experiences. Some may demonstrate “resilience,” or an

adaptive response to serious hardship. A better understanding of why some children do

well despite early adversity is important because it can help us design policies and

programs that help more children reach their full potential. These three videos provide

an overview of why resilience matters, how it develops, and how to strengthen it in children.
