Self-Efficacy & Resiliency:

A student’s belief about her/his capability to perform a task or manage a situation.

A student’s ability to overcome obstacles or rebound from setbacks. 

We know that:

  • Raising students’ self-efficacy can be more effective in raising achievement levels than remedial programs, tutors, and adopting a new curriculum, and at much less cost. 
  • There are four proven ways to increase student self-efficacy. 
  • Student self-efficacy is closely related to teacher self-efficacy. 
  • Resilient students will be more successful in school and in the future, than those who are less resilient. 
  • All students are born resilient, but many lose this quality because three environmental factors are missing in their lives.
  • Educators can make these three factors part of every student’s school experience.

At the end of this workshop:


Participants will have the knowledge and skills necessary to . . .

  • Raise self-efficacy and resiliency levels of the students they serve.
  • Explain self-efficacy and resiliency to colleagues and parents.
  • Raise their own self-efficacy and resiliency levels.

During this economic downturn, many educators are being asked to do more with less.
Being able to raise self-efficacy and resiliency levels is one way to do this.
