Resiliency Sciences Institutes at UMBC Training Centers

Overview | Class Schedule | Faculty | Articles & Resources


The ability to handle stress and adversity affects all aspects of the human experience. Evidence suggests that a person's ability to withstand, or bounce back from, adversity is a key factor in, not only physical and mental health, but in personal and professional success, as well.

Based upon the work of leaders in the field of human resilience, our programs are designed to teach the practical skills and knowledge needed to succeed and prosper in the face of stress and adversity, regardless of where they may be encountered, at home, school, the athletic field, on stage, or the workplace.

Programs offered provide participants with the ability to foster resilience, not only in themselves, but in others, as well.
