MONT 4312: Resilience in Children & Youth:Global Perspectives

3 CreditsGlobal Perspectives

How do children overcome hazardous experiences to succeed in life? What can be done to protect young people at risk from trauma, war, disasters, and other adversities? This course examines the global literature on resilience in children and youth. We will focus on the origins, methods, findings, controversies, and future of research on how young people overcome adversity, as well as the implications of this body of knowledge for fostering resilience in children and societies. This course combines a classroom seminar with a 6-module massive open online course (MOOC). The MOOC, Resilience in Children Exposed to Trauma, Disaster and War: Global Perspectives, is taught by Professor Ann S. Masten, Ph.D., LP from the University of Minnesota. Students will participate fully in the MOOC (see the detailed MOOC syllabus) in addition to attending seminar sessions in France (see schedule below). Students will experience global interaction by participating in a live MOOC online with other participants around the world combined with face-to-face dialogue in a seminar at the Program Center.
