By Richard C. Lumb, Ph.D.  and  Ronald L. Breazeale, Ph.D.

Building Resilience: A Peer Coaching Manual, Assisting Others to Aquire and Sustain Positive Change is now available for purchase at $34.95.

“This manual is premised on the assumption that there is no single most effective model of helping people when conditions, situations, or events occur to upset the balance in life. We know the impact of stress, adversity, and trauma is often left to work itself out. But at what cost? Usually, an event occurs that disrupts normal life and forces the individual to refocus differently in resolving the problem. Finding a path around the obstacles encountered is often too daunting to consider. We need not got it alone when faced with a negative experience, especially when associates are trained to assist us. We can move forward to a return to balance more quickly when we are supported.”

To help you understand the principles and objectives of our training and how it helps to build stronger, more resilient communities and organizations, we have composed an article below.  Follow the link below to read the PDF version.
