Resilience-Based Interaction Model (RIM) is an approach consisting of emotionally –responsive principles and techniques for adult’s behaviors and language during daily interactions with children, rather than a curriculum or series of lesson plans. The pilot and research are producing significant outcomes.  Currently designed for teachers, a parent version of RIM is in development.   Participants will learn about this innovative approach to promoting mental health and resilience in young children.
