A Companion Guide to Growing Resilience focuses on supports based on the top 5 Resilience Factors:

  1. Positive connections with safe adults
  2. A sense of belonging with local groups
  3. An external support system such as friends, faith, spiritual practice, or pet
  4. Self-Esteem, self-worth, self-compassion – feeling good about myself
  5. Voice, choice, and control regarding big and small things in life

Adapting and/or bouncing back during times of adversity is so important for you and the people you support!
