Nurturing Resiliency in Children and Youth
Description: During her career in Christian education, Virginia has followed research in the social sciences about resiliency as a significant factor within human development. The research on resiliency continues to demonstrate that resiliency is not a genetic trait carried by only a special few. Rather, it can be cultivated in all children throughout their developmental years. Intentionally nurturing resiliency in young people provides essential support for a healthy, stable life journey.
