Resilience in the Schools: Understanding and Fostering Positive Adaptation in At-Risk Students
Speaker: Amity Noltemeyer
Children and adolescents worldwide enter classrooms having experienced a diverse array of adversities and vulnerabilities. Considering the shared goal of school-based professionals to foster success in all students, how can resilience research be harnessed to establish nurturing school environments that buffer these risks and support positive development? This presentation will focus on school-based resilience promotion, equipping attendees with skills to support resilience processes at both a student level and systems level. Attendees will learn about mechanisms undergirding resilience in at-risk students, with a specific focus on risk and protective factors relevant within the school setting. Recommendations for school-based practice emerging from this research-based understanding of resilience will be emphasized. Specifically, a tiered model of school-based prevention and intervention – one that addresses multiple systems of influence, matches supports to students based on their unique risk and protective factors, and uses data to drive decision-making – will be highlighted. Opportunities for interaction, dialogue, case study review, and reflection will be incorporated into the presentation.
