Beautiful child-friendly graphics show why it is important to understand how our brains respond to stress, and how we can learn to manage our responses by building a toolkit of strategies. This is an interactive book, encouraging use of the 42 resilience strategies from the child-focused deck of cards, from a child’s perspective.
This product includes: Real Life Super Heroes Story Book, Child Focused Resilience Building Blocks Deck of Cards with informational handbook to help adults use the cards with children.

“I believe that everyone, especially a child, deserves to know how their brains are shaped by environment, to then understand their capacity for building proactive protective factors. We all deserve to be super heroes as we do the best we can to consciously live life well. ” – Teri Barila
Available exclusively from the Community Resilience Initiative™, the deck includes 42 child focused Resilience Building Blocks to help build resilience into our children’s lives. The handbook explains the ACEs and Resilience information in brief content material, and describes each Resilience card. We include a couple of game ideas and other valuable information.

“Today I had something happen that triggered a memory from my childhood, living an experience with ACEs. Seeing the drawings today in this Storybook made a difference to me. Although the trauma I experienced was many years ago, there was some sort of recognition I connected with tin these stories. I felt that I mattered. It somehow soothed me that somehow took the time to attend to the vulnerability of a child in pain and that is done in a very tender way. I would have loved to have this book read to me when I was a child. I would have made those kids my invisible friends to ease my loneliness.” – Maria Merino
