Why teach & promote resilience?

We all want children and young people to feel good and function well. The real world is a messy place and that’s why our goal is for every child to learn the skills of resilience so they can thrive no matter what happens.

“Teachers are hopelessly overloaded and stressed. New = more work in most people’s minds. The Penn Resilience Programme, however, is something that could make teachers’ as well as students’ lives more fluent and enjoyable.”  A school teacher after using the PRP with us

What is resilience?

Resilience means we can feel good and flourish in everyday life and cope when things get tough. It doesn’t mean being happy all the time because real life isn’t like that. Resilience is far more useful: it means we can deal with a difficult situation, and learn from it. It means too that when an opportunity arises, we seize it and make the most of it. Like any skill worth having resilience takes practice but the capacity lies in all of us: How to Thrive shows you how to develop and use it in your school.
