Course Description

Resilience and coping have been hot topics in the recent era of multiple societal and environmental stressors. Teenagers and their families have had to learn to adapt to challenges they’ve never imagined. UCSF has been involved in clinical care, education, and research in these fields since well before recent events and have been actively engaged in elevating supports during challenging times. In this course, we will hear from researchers, educators, and clinicians as they investigate, develop, and deliver the knowledge base and tools to help our local and extended community build the resources to help our children and teenagers not only cope in challenging times, but thrive.
