Stone Soup : A Recipe for Building Resiliency Among Children
MetadataShow full item record
Despite a decade of effort, we have seen limited success in increasing the personal preparedness of adults that is thought to create individual and community resiliency. Since inadequate preparation by adults can negatively impact children, preparedness education for children is now a priority. Unfortunately, the current resource-based model of preparedness presents a barrier to many children who have or control limited resources. This highlights the need to examine other approaches to achieving resiliency among children. This thesis argues that adaptive capacity may be more beneficial for increasing resilience among children, that adaptive capacity can be taught, and that schools are the best place for such education to occur. Lastly, it addresses the significant challenges related to responsibility for teaching and content.
