Helping students to become resilient

New publication provides strategies for school counselors

A new guide helps guidance counselors, educators, and after-school staff coach students on how to be resilient, as well as the positive effects of strong character. The publication combines the teaching of ethics with helping children to resolve problems in everyday life. Strategies include:

- Strengthening adult and child partnerships in problem-solving

- Drawing lessons and ideas from the experiences of story characters to apply to students' lives

- Engaging in discussions to enhance listening, mentoring and coaching

- Teaching a variety of coping mechanisms and strategies
