Resilience in Children Exposed to Trauma, Disaster and War: Global Perspectives
FREE ONLINE
6 weeks takes 3-5

Children around the world experience severe adversity in different forms, including maltreatment, disaster, war, and terrorism. Some children manage to adapt and recover, showing resilience, while others do not. What do we know about resilience and how to protect child development in the face of potentially life-altering adversities? This course will examine the global literature on resilience in children and youth, with a focus on core concepts, methods scholars use to study resilience, highlights of lessons learned from half a century of research, and applications to promote resilience in children whose lives are threatened by extreme adversity.

The class will consist of six major topics, one per week. Each week will include a series of short lectures or video presentations, approximately 10-18 minutes each. In addition, there will be one or two readings and “active learning” assignments, such as completing a brief interview or survey, commenting on readings or films, and engaging in a forum discussion online.
