Creating Resilient Families for Children with Special Needs
According to the American Psychological Association, resilience is defined as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress.” It’s about how you handle negative feelings and move forward in a healthy, positive manner. It is important to remember that resilience is something that is developed over time through thoughts, behaviors, and actions. Children with special needs and their families experience greater stress and need help building their resiliency.
