Strategies to Build Educational Resilience Amongst Students

Project Empower Webinar with Shontell White and Allison Fears

The purpose of this webinar is to define educational resilience and to provide suggestions for fostering educational resilience amongst students. Utilizing an intersectionality lens, this webinar will explore the research that has been conducted on the topic of resilience in education and will consider what might be missing from this body of knowledge. Resilience literature considers the impact of roles and relationships outside of the school building that may contribute to positive educational outcomes (Williams & Portman, 2014). The session will consider these protective factors and will provide suggestions about how schools can help foster supportive networks for their students. This webinar will be tailored to school counselors, but will also consider the perspectives of other educators, guardians, and other important stakeholders.
