Carol Doll (library science, Old Dominion U.) and Beth Doll (school psychology, U. of Nebraska) suggest specific strategies school library media specialists can use to strengthen all children's resilience. They outline the six elements of schools that promote academic engagement--academic efficacy, self-selected learning goals, behavioral self-control, positive relationships with peers, a positive relationship with a caring adult, and creating a family situation that supports what happens in school--and include suggestions for supporting and promoting resilience in the school library, as well as action research techniques to document changes.
