Abstract

In the pursuit of creating inclusive education settings, this chapter delves into the critical importance of building resilience among teachers and schools as a child protection strategy. Recognizing the challenges faced in implementing effective child protection policies and procedures, including a lack of awareness, and understanding among teachers, this chapter emphasizes the need for proactive communication and collaboration among various stakeholders. By prioritizing resilience, teachers and schools can address these obstacles head-on, promoting a safe and protective environment for all children. The chapter explores the concept of resilience and its profound relevance to the education sector, shedding light on the significance of self-care, coping strategies, and social support in fostering resilience. By providing practical recommendations, such as comprehensive training, supportive systems, and fostering a culture of openness and accountability, this chapter offers actionable insights for building resilience among teachers and schools.
