Wellness and Resiliency in Children and their Communities

الصحة والمرونة النفسية
عند الأطفال ومجتمعاتهم

Developing knowledge of wellness and resilience are critical for behavioral health and human services providers who work with children, families and the community. The knowledge and skills-based acquisition are useful in all practice settings across mental health, primary care, school, social work and child-welfare.

 

The goal of the lectures is to strengthen families by promoting wellness and healthy parenting so that children are safe, nurtured and supported in reaching their full potential in the community where they live. The four interactive online lectures provide an overview of the science of brain and child development, understanding and coping with acute and chronic stress. The lectures also provide practice-based evidence to promote individual, family wellness and community resilience that is culturally relevant to the socio-cultural-historical context in Saudi.

An array of reading resources, videos and experiential approaches are used to enhance the learning experience. Virtual discussion follows each lecture during the same week. Each virtual discussion enhances the knowledge and skill acquisition with the exchange of cultural definitions, cultural assessment of family values, codes of conduct, rules and expectations to formulate intervention strategies.
