EDU 519 - Risk and Resilience in Educational Settings

Resilience is the ability to “bounce back” in the face of adversity. It is a process (not a product) that can be fostered in children in multiple ways. This course will explore how risk impacts students and their education through a systems approach, as well as how to identify and increase protective factors. It will examine risk and resilience processes during childhood and adolescence and the long terms effects of risk on the lifespan. Diverse conceptual, empirical, and applied perspectives from sociology, psychology, and education will be employed to understand how resilience is present in the multiple contexts of child development. Application of theory and research to practice will be emphasized throughout this course.
