Devereux Center for Resilient Children (DCRC)
Resilience Quarterly

Let's look at this past quarter...

We continued to dig deep.

As a reminder, our team decided to take the year of 2022 to sit down and really focus on key concepts in the early care and education world. We kept it going with our limited series theme, Let's Dig Deep, this time taking on the term "toxic positivity." If you haven't seen this latest installment just yet, we encourage you to make the time to watch. Click here to do so now!

And in case you weren't aware of this little initiative of ours, we invite and encourage you to check out our YouTube channel - not just for the Let's Dig Deep installments, but for the multiple other videos you will find that we hope you'll find valuable as well.

We released our 2022-23 calendars of virtual trainings and free webinars. That's right, friends! Believe it or not, we have scheduled our virtual trainings and free webinars for the 2022-2023 school/program year. From August 2022 to June 2023, there are multiple offerings of professional development with our team. Be sure you take a look at both calendars, sooner rather than later! There are a handful of trainings that only offer a limited number of spots, including our FLIP IT Virtual Train-the-Trainers and our Building Your Bounce Virtual Train-the-Trainers. Follow either of the buttons below to see what's on deck!

We created and published this shareable video overview about the DECA Program.

ICYMI (in case you missed it), our team put together this brief video that aims to provide an overview of the Devereux Early Childhood Assessment (DECA) Program. It's great for those totally unfamiliar with the program and wanting a quick introduction. It may also serve as a way for you to introduce it to, and gain buy-in from, team members and/or parents and families. Check it out!

New blog post:

Big Conversations with Little Children.

Children throughout the country are facing mounting mental health issues, and parents and educators need to tend to children’s social and emotional well-being, primarily by being fully present and knowing how to engage in challenging, age-appropriate discussions, even with toddlers. Young children need guidance to make sense of the world even with topics that are difficult for parents.
