Building on the Strengths of Youth Who Have Endured Hardship
This webinar is hosted by Community Technical Assistance Center (CTAC) and the Managed Care Technical Assistant Center (MCTAC)
Although there’s an extensive history of research and scholarship on resilience and youth, our understanding of the term can sometimes be unclear and challenging to translate into practice. What can seem like a sign of strength and resilience to one practitioner can seem the opposite to another. The word itself can sometimes provoke intense debate when confused with “bootstrap” thinking. However, resilience is relatively well-defined, generally, as the ability to adapt in the face of extreme adversity. Rather than an individual trait, it is a dynamic process that involves individual strengths that develop through relationships with others. In this webinar Dr. Ken Ginsburg will share his thoughts on resilience in youth. Dr. Ginsburg has used his practice experience to create evidence-informed interventions and resources to help providers foster resilience in teens and families. He will focus on three areas: (1) the power of relationships, (2) trauma sensitive practice, and (3) strength-based communication.
