The Resilience Project

A resource from the American Academy of Pediatrics

Through funding from the Department of Justice, the American Academy of Pediatrics has developed resources for pediatricians and medical home teams to more effectively identify and care for children and adolescents who have been exposed to violence. The Resilience Project Website is designed to provide pediatricians and medical home teams with information and resources needed to modify practice operations to more effectively identify, treat, and refer children and youth who have been exposed to or victimized by violence. While exposure to violence is traumatic, children and youth can heal and continue to thrive with the support of their medical home and the community around them.
