Wonderful and very well-detailed research-based course about resilience in children. Learned a lot from the splendid instructor. Very detailed and empowering course. Highly recommended.
Professor Masten did a wonderful job explaining the concepts and delving well into all areas of resilience. The course was no less than classroom teaching. It was perfect.

I found this course extremely informative. The thorough overview provided of the research that has gone into the science of resilience was fascinating. The concept of adaptive factors and promotive factors for improving ones ability to overcome adversity was valuable because I work with at-risk students. I appreciated the perspectives offered by the guest speakers included in the course as well. However, the discussion forum was only slightly useful and having to take a "final" exam was unnecessary. I found the final exam process infuriating, especially when the questions changed for every retake not providing the option for the process of elimination. Since it's not a course one is getting credit for or to receive a final grade for a college transcript, it shouldn't be an additional requirement for completing a course!

I really enjoy and learned a lot about resilience in this course. Profesor Masten is a well known researcher in this field and know what she is talking. I believe it is a good appetizer for those who aren't sure about what way to go within the psychology, psychiatry, and mental health sciences. I would have loved for this course to have talked more in detail about the treatment and therapies to treat children and how to actually do the treatment; some therapies are mention during the course, but it doesn't really emphasises on any of them. Another reason that I rate this course 4 starts is because I posted a couple of questions about the videos of the course and they were never answered, I felt like if nobody was on the other side.
I appreciate your input. Thank you!

I thought the course was very interesting and also very varied in terms of the content presented. I liked being able to follow the links and learn on my own terms the different types of strategies and interventions that are being put into place. Dr. Masten provides lots of insight into the current research and was able to give us an insight into the research by talking to other influential people in the field which was very cool! I do think that sometimes the coursework was a bit much for my schedule especially with some of the required readings but it was nevertheless manageable given the right schedule of self-discipline.

This course gives great insight and a good overview of resilience in children and the current place we are in, in terms of research in this field. I would recommend this to anyone who interacts with children and people in general because a big lesson that came from this course is that it is never to late to show resilience. It has given me a good footing on some of the principles and I look forward to implementing what I learnt in my life and work.

Gives a very good overview of resilience and offers a broad spectrum of resources. The lectures are well structred, but a bit lengthy.
Some of the data is outdated and very focused on the US. It would be nice to see some more recent and global examples in an updated version of the course.
par Danielle M•
It was an excellent course. A great overview of knowledge that is very needed.
I believe it needs some updating and some more energy. Sometimes I found the lectures hard to follow as it was lacking energetic engagement.

A lot of interestning studies and besides, some really good intervention programs. It has extended my sight on this domain and I can assure that it will be very usefull in my professional life.

It's good that there are a variety of subtopics per week. However, sometimes some videos are not specific, i.e. sometimes they are more extensive than they could be.
par Upasana B•
I felt that at many points, the course focused on bluntly conveying facts more than making the videos engaging. There should be more interesting interactions.
par Nahid N J•
It was an excellent course in case of resilience in children. A sensitive topic which has been described nicely with lots of case studies and example.
par Julie P•
I enjoyed the course, but it needed more depth, possibly in treatments and outcomes. The lectures were kind of long and windy, but informative.

very very very useful course content for the better understanding of resilience and how to promote it in an austere environment.
