Resilience Tip #9: “How to Help Families and Staff Build Resilience During COVID 19 Outbreak”
“Resilience can help us get through and overcome hardship. But resilience is not something we’re born with—it’s built over time as the experiences we have interact with our unique, individual genetic makeup. That’s why we all respond to stress and adversity—like that from the COVID-19 pandemic—differently.
Think of resilience as a seesaw or balance scale, where negative experiences tip the scale toward bad outcomes, and positive experiences tip it toward good outcomes. . . .
We can make it easier for a scale to tip toward positive outcomes by strengthening core life skills.”
