Kids and Students
Integral resilience can be cultivated as early as pre-school and there are various new products available to do this. As there is strong correlation of integral resilience with enhanced creativity, the subject is also ideal candidate for the UCSB’s programs on entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology management.
The CHME is an ideal platform to engage the primary schools in Santa Barbara by introducing innovative new products such as the Resilience Game developed by the Harvard Center for the Developing Child. In this game players learn how the choices they make can help children and the community as a whole become more resilient in the face of serious challenges. Negative events can occur at any moment, and players must influence positive events to counteract these negative conditions. Players only have 20 ‘Resilience Bucks’ to spend. Certain positives will better counteract certain negatives and have a greater positive effect on children in the community. The goal is to tip as many children’s scales as possible toward positive outcomes.
