NRI understands that human resilience is skills-based, and therefore teachable. We offer evidence-based workshops, trainings, and certification programs to empower leaders to grow resilience in their own lives and communities. We convene resilience pioneers from around the world and multiple disciplines to collaboratively create innovative solutions for today’s most pressing challenges. We also conduct research and develop models, including the THRIVE Model™ of Human Resilience. Our key areas of practice include growing resilience in students, communities, military families, and public health.
