Resiliency and Young Children: Self-Efficacy
Fact Sheet, 2013
People who are resilient have three main abilities: relax, reflect, and respond. These abilities can be further broken down into seven resiliency skills. Each skill forms the basis on which others can be built. The seven skills are emotional regulation, impulse control, causal analysis, empathy, realistic optimism, self-efficacy, and reaching out. This fact sheet focuses on practical ways that caregivers and frontline workers can help children build skills in the area of self-efficacy.
