As a part of our Kids Need Connections child abuse prevention campaign, SCAN has designed a series entitled Children’s Stories That Build Resiliency. On October 10th, SCAN will host a workshop at the Center for Alexandria’s Children that will include an overview of resiliency in children, why it is important and how it can be built, and how to use these stories to tap into a child’s love of reading and discovery of themselves. We will be highlighting the story The Invisible String by Patrice Karst, reviewing the questions, as well as participating in two activities in which the story can be extended.
