THRIVE Resilience Model™

Home > THRIVE Resilience Model™

In our modern world, it is more important than ever to consciously create an environment that offers a lifeline to people in danger of losing their way into confusion, loneliness, and emptiness. As part of our work to help communities cultivate lives of meaningful connection, hope, purpose, and wellness, the NRI employs the THRIVE Resilience Model™ developed by Dr. Mollie Marti.

This evidence-informed model optimizes a community’s ability to support its members to grow their capacity to cope with stressful events and thrive in the face of adversity. This holistic model takes into account mental, physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and environmental needs.

Innovative communities, schools, and organizations are using the 6 Capacity Builders from the THRIVE Model (Trusted Adults – High Expectations – Resilience Building – Involvement –Vision – Enrichment) to strengthen their members, facilitate recovery from trauma, and prevent tragic loss of life.
