When is the most important time to foster resilience?

Interventions that foster resilience are useful at any time in an individuals life, but are most advantageous in the first five years when high quality care-giving and early education can have a major impact.

Adolescence is another key period, as is the transition into adulthood, which for young people involves leaving school and transferring into work, or entry to college or university.  Young people may be vulnerable at times of transition and this is when fostering their resilience can be critical.
