Applying a Positive Youth Development Framework to Increase Resiliency and Thrive

Applying a Positive Youth Development Framework to Increase Resiliency and Thrive

About This Webinar:

Webinar #2 of 4 in the Military Youth: Protecting and Promoting Resilience and Well-Being webinar series.

Disruptions like the pandemic create a new, different landscape for the development of youth. For some youth, it is the best of times; for others, it is the worst of times; for many, it is both. This webinar addresses two important questions for service providers:

1) How are military youth faring in this changing landscape?

2) How do we assess and rebuild programs with a youth development framework that builds resilience and reduces risk of military youth?


Dr. Kathrine Sullivan is an Assistant Professor at the Silver School of Social Work at New York University.

Daniel F. Perkins, Ph.D., is a Family and Youth Resiliency and Policy Professor at Penn State University.  He is also the Principal Scientist of the Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness at Penn State, a university-wide applied research center.

Continuing education credit is available.
