This chapter seeks to further define resiliency while also delving into the nature of psychological trauma. Cognitive appraisal and the nature of resulting emotional reactions will serve as mechanisms for understanding response to critical incidents. Strategies to help students understand critical incidents and to restore core beliefs will be discussed. The Johns Hopkins University model of Human Resistance, Resiliency and Recovery will provide a framework for providing realistic expectations, fostering group cohesion and social support, developing positive cognitions, and building self-efficacy and hardiness among students. Working from this model, this chapter offers a discussion of seven core skills to build and foster resiliency among school-aged children and youth.
