From Zero to Thrive! Promoting Resilience in Children Who Have Experienced Adversity and/or Trauma


Kate Rosenblum, Ph.D., PhD, IMH-E IV, Professor, University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry

Recent research underscores the impact of trauma and cumulative adversity on children’s brain development and physical, social-emotional and relational health. Promoting resilience can mitigate the effects of these exposures. Drawing from both cutting edge research findings as well as the wealth of practical wisdom, this presentation will provide an overview of resilience, explore factors that promote resilience, and introduce strategies for promoting resilience in children, youth and families.
