BREAKING NEWS

The Story:

What Parents Can Learn about Teaching Resilience From ‘Room’ as seen in TIME reported by Dr. Harold Koplewicz

What struck me, as a child psychiatrist was how those performances show the inspired resilience of a small family placed in an impossible situation.

Our Expert Opinion:

Unfortunately millions of children around the world experience man made and natural disasters that have the potential to traumatize them. Informed parents, caregivers and teachers have the ability to minimize the effects of trauma for these children at risk. Remarkably with the proper intervention children can be very resilient.

– Harold S. Koplewicz, MD, founding president of the Child Mind Institute

A PROJECT 375 Perspective:

Every time I go through something traumatic, when I make it through, I get stronger and feel better than I did before. Thanks to my family, friends and other support networks (like doctors and counselors) I’ve been able to make it through a lot. I hope more people will be able to accept life and keep fighting

– Kyle, PROJECT 375 Ambassador

PROJECT 375: What makes you happiest?

Kathy: Having the space to soothe myself, and starting every day with any kind of mindful exercise, whether it’s yoga or running, and so on. It’s even better if my daughter is awake and exercising with me. 🙂
