Spirituality in Children: A Source of Resilience

Presented by Daniela White, MD, Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatry. This talk will explore the meaning and the sources for resilience. Dr. White will attempt to contrast religiosity and spirituality, and show how they can be major sources for developing resilience in children and adolescents. Storytelling and fairy tales will be discussed as means of shaping the child’s spiritual being, and how they can be used as tools in helping children develop a coherent understanding of the world and find answers to existential questions. We will also touch on the child’s need for magic and the relationship between magic beliefs and spirituality.
