Nurture Resilience & Support Schoolchildren Struggling With Adverse Experiences School shootings, hurricanes - the wind killing people, sweeping away their homes - and threats of nuclear war. You had a tough childhood?! Look at what’s on the TV screen today! Call Hope Rising. Give children hope for a better tomorrow! The organization has issued its 2022/2023 ‘My Best Me’ SEL curriculum for schoolchildren from elementary school through the 12th grade. The lesson plans, which are intended to nurture resilience and hope in all students, also borrow from research into Post Traumatic Growth (PTG). Hope Rising’s curriculum taps into researchers’ broader understanding of traumatic experiences and how they can often serve as a springboard for personal growth. PTG helps survivors develop heightened levels of awareness and self- understanding which can in turn trigger more meaningful & beneficial relationships with others in the community. For children, the practices of SEL can help nurture PTG, offering kids safe, secure, environments & consistent, engaged, caring relationships with both adults and their own peers.
