The International Transformational Resilience Coalition (ITRC) is working on an inventory of programs that build psychological and/or psychosocial resilience for many types of adversities in the Pacific Northwest. I am reaching out to the ACEs Connection community to find contacts or programs relevant to these goals in Alaska. We're looking for programs that teach skills to help people overcome adversity: mindfulness, social support, finding purpose, etc.
Once complete, the research in this inventory will form the basis of a widely distributed report describing the variety and scope of human resilience building programs underway in the PNW and the many benefits they provide. The report is intended to help expand many existing human resilience building initiatives, and launch new ones to ensure that eventually every adult and child has the opportunity to learn resilience building skills.
If you know of any programs in Alaska teaching resilience skills, please get in touch with me so that they can be included in this inventory.
Thank you all!
All the best,
