Community Resilience Cookbook

the Health Federation of Philadelphia

Building on the growing body of research and evidence on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), this resource focuses on protective factors that can foster resilience -- the capacity to thrive in both good times and difficult ones. This cookbook aims offers context, definitions and questions to help you think about building resilience where you live, including examples of how communities in the United States and Canada are putting the theories of ACEs and resilience into practice.
