THE SCIENCE.
SSL BUTTERFLIES_edited.png

In collaboration with communities, Dr. Barbara Burns developed Resilient Families Parent Education Programs across more than 30 years of work as a developmental psychologist and early intervention specialist.

Our programs leverage the power of scientific research of early child development, neurobiology, and resilience to empower families to help their children build a more peaceful heart and strong and flexible mind.

Programs are designed to promote psychological strengths that can buffer the impact of adversity, trauma and poverty on young children's healthy development.
