Start Where You Are

Start Where You Are

Resilience is not something you have or don’t have. We each can start where we are and learn skills that grow our strength and capacity to cope with adversity. And we can learn how to help others grow resilience!

NRI convenes resilience experts from multiple disciplines to collaboratively create innovative solutions for today’s most pressing challenges. We conduct research and develop models, including the THRIVE Resilience Model™. Our evidence-based workshops, trainings, and certification programs to help helpers and leaders grow human resilience in the areas of education, military, crisis response, and work-life.
