The Resilience Alphabet can be used in lots of different way to develop these skills.

You can access and use it on-line or you could print them off to make Resilience Alphabet cards.

Perhaps you could randomly select letters of the alphabet – maybe using the letters within your name, or perhaps start at the very beginning, a, b, c and so on.
