We are a non-profit committed to helping communities and individuals heal from trauma by sharing science-based insights in order to promote and cultivate resilience. We believe what is predictable is preventable and that resilience trumps adversity.


At CRI, we believe in the beauty of learning. We also believe that you are never too old to learn something new! The CRI shop is filled with products for learning & teaching.


Community engagement is one of the pillars of CRI's work. Our goal is to empower communities and individuals through innovative resilience-based strategies.


Resilience is not something we are born with or learned overnight. Rather, we view resilience as an action, a verb. Building resilience begins with learning the science.


CRI offers an array of trainings, all of which utilize science-based insights to teach about brain science, the impact of trauma on the brain, and the importance of resilience.


Building community and encouraging resilience is done by partnering with schools, supporting teachers, engaging with parents, and collaborating with community members.
