The impact of traumatic childhood experiences can continue into physical and mental disorders in adulthood. Profound experiences are death of family members or being on the run in conflict areas. Resilience acts as a significant buffer against risks and resilient children are better able to deal with traumatic events. TNO develops evidence-based intervention programmes to make children more resilient.
Resilience is about being able to cope with the demands of society, to make independent choices, and to deal with setbacks. TNO develops evidence-based intervention programmes to make children more resilient, which can be used by schools, preventive child healthcare, welfare and other professional organizations.
