MetadataShow full item record
The notion of resilience has emerged in the 21st century as an important factor influencing children's responses to adverse events. In the past 10 years, resilience theory and resilience programs for children have flourished globally. 'Healthy Mindsets for Super Kids' is a new program aimed at building resilience in children aged 9-14. The program features 10 modules, illustrated by superhero themes, on topics of communication and social skills, anger management, grief and loss, body image, healthy relationships, and positive thinking. This review will introduce the Healthy Mindsets for Super Kids program (Jessica Kingsley publishers, 2014) in use by practitioners in educational, community and mental health settings. It will describe its content, evaluation and the value in building resilience in children at risk of mental health issues.
