Workbooks for ChildrenResilienceWorkbook(1).1

We developed “My Resilience Workbook” for children living under rocket fire in Israel, but they have since been translated into seven other languages and are being used around the world, including in post-disaster zones. Please be in touch if you’re interested in using our resilience workbooks for children in Hebrew, English, Arabic, Amharic, French, Nepali, German, or Spanish, or in translating them into another language.
