It is no secret that today’s generations face increased pressures and challenges like no previous generation. Whether it is the pressure to fit in or perform well in the classroom, on an athletic team, or even to meet the demands within the home, kids are struggling, and the impact has been devastating as mental health issues continue to surge among this population. Therefore, this workshop will examine the contributing issues and highlight the significant research on resilience, which has been noted as an increasingly important element in helping children persist and remain hopeful in adversity. Further, this workshop gives licensed mental health professionals and ministry leaders evidence-based practices, including attachment-based and cognitive-behavioral strategies and techniques that can be used along with their impact on developing adaptive skills and facilitating resilience within the next generation.
