Building Resilience In Children

Feb 5, 2023    Dr. Brenda Navarrete

This workshop will focus on strategies that build resilience in children and youth for human trafficking prevention and protection. We will review factors that make children and youth more vulnerable to exploitation and outline specific strategies, activities, and communication styles that build protective resilience. The purpose of this workshop is to develop practical skills that EVERYONE can implement with the people in their lives to reduce vulnerability in their communities. Topics covered will include approaches to age-appropriate conversations about human trafficking and child safety with children and adolescents, building healthy bonds and connection, and the development of healthy emotion-coping skills.
