Resilience in a Time of War - wartime stress and teens

Introduction

What does war mean to you?

It may seem like the war has nothing to do with you. On the other hand, the news can seem overwhelming. You may have a friend in JROTC or ROTC, or you may have a relative in the military. And, with the threat of terrorism, the war can get close to home pretty quickly. You keep hearing about being prepared for war — is there something you can do to prepare mentally? The good news is that you can learn the skills of resilience — the ability to adapt well in the face of hard times and disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes or fires; tragedy; threats; or even high stress. What are some tips that can help you learn resilience? As you use these tips, keep in mind that each person's journey along the road to resilience will be different — what works for you may not work for your friends.
