Promoting Resilience with LAC

Training courses for foster carers

Whatever has gone wrong in the lives of young people in the past, in order to develop as successful adults, they need help to overcome the adversity they have experienced.

Some of what’s necessary for this comes from the strengths that the young people have within themselves: humour, intelligence, persistence, courage, insight about their problems, loyalty and the ability to understand the actions of others.

Foster carers play an important part in helping children make use of the quality of resilience – the strengths or protective factors which can help a child overcome adversity and enhance self-esteem.
