In the last three years, societal stress and trauma exposure have become even more rampant. Although children, youth and families are struggling with increasing mental health, academic, and developmental challenges, scholars and those working with youth in our communities have noted some silver linings and evidence of resilience. Understanding how children, youth, families and the institutions who serve them weather times of crisis and strain and recover in the face of challenge is key to supporting children. Attention to cultural variation and how such challenges are compounded for children and youth from marginalized communities is essential to identifying key developmental processes that inform the next generation of prevention, intervention, and educational programming. Speakers and attendee conversations will address resilience and recovery for youth, children, families and the institutions who serve them in times of adversity and challenge.
