Teaching Resilience to Thrive on the Other Side

The Brookfield Institute offers a variety of trainings that develop and hone the awareness, skills, and processes of resilience. We empower people—including military families and veterans, congregations, interfaith groups, and communities hit by strife and disaster—to thrive on the other side of adversity. We offer two foundational trainings: 

Conflict Transformation and dialogue

Trauma Resilience/STAR

Additional Brookfield courses and seminars build on these foundation courses to teach more advanced concepts and practices that build resilience.  Our unique cross-disciplinary programs speak to our participants on emotional, spiritual, and intellectual levels. All of our programs, refined through years of research and practice, help individuals, families, and communities to respond in healthy ways to change, conflict and trauma. We help a resilient community to: 

  • Learn how to heal from trauma as individuals and as a community
  • Avoid or break out of destructive cycles of victimhood and violence
  • Connect and work through differences by engaging in healthy dialogue and honoring the dignity of every individual
  • Foster self-aware, effective leaders
