Is it possible for one person to make a noticeable difference in the life of a child?

Through stories, research, and strategies, Dr. John W. Hodge shows how children can be successful despite the risk factors that typically hold them back. Children who overcome usually have one thing in common: the presence of educators, counselors, social workers, community advocates, and family members – people just like you – who can see beyond demographic and social limitations to the unlimited potential that lies within the hearts and minds of all children.

This book will clearly explain how the actions of caring adults have been the difference between success and failure for children like the ones you see in your schools every day. As you read, you will gain a fundamental understanding of how the resilience phenomenon works and gain insight into ways you can foster resilience in students.

You’ll Learn About:

  • School Accountability and the Achievement Gap
  • The Role of Resilience in Overcoming Obstacles
  • Positive Actions that Can Reduce the Impact of Adversity
  • The Long-Term Power of Relationships
  • Developing a Collaborative Action Plan

The evidence is overwhelming that one person’s willingness to act can enhance resilience in children to such an extent that they overcome obstacles and eventually thrive. That one person just might be YOU.

You Can Get in the Way is a quick but highly informative read, good for professional development.

As I read You Can Get in the Way I was thinking about how powerful my role as a teacher truly is in helping students reach their HIGHEST potential. The barriers to high student achievement, such as poverty, demographics or social limitations, should not determine the success of a student, but too many times, it does! As you read this book, you will gain a fundamental understanding of how the resilience phenomenon works and gain insight into ways you can foster resilience in students. The evidence is overwhelming that one person’s willingness to act can enhance resilience in children to such an extent that they overcome obstacles and eventually thrive. That one person just might be YOU!
