The CorStone Center

for Personal Resilience

 

Vision

We envision a world that chooses Love over Fear, Compassion over Indifference, and Forgiveness over Blame in the face of challenge, conflict or crisis.

 

Mission

The CorStone Center for Personal Resilience (CPR) develops and implements resilience-based interventions and research initiatives to improve the health, education, and self-sufficiency of marginalized adults and youth around the world.

 

Personal Resilience

Personal Resilience is the capacity to 'bounce back' and thrive despite significant adversity. Personal Resilience is not an innate talent or quality. Rather, it’s the result of a set of skills and supports that can be learned and cultivated.

 

We believe that within every challenge lies the potential for personal growth and positive change in our mental, emotional and physical health, personal relationships, and professional lives. We believe that the capacity to thrive can be harnessed in all of us—even in those who seem the most vulnerable —through empirically supported resilience-based strategies.

 

The missing component to help the under-served thrive.

At CPR we focus our efforts on the marginalized, the economically disadvantaged, and the under-served.

 

We believe that cultivating personal resilience represents a significant paradigm shift in worldwide efforts to improve health, increase academic achievement among youth, and reduce poverty.

 

We consider building personal resilience to be a foundational step in helping people to thrive—one which is often missing in current global development policies and programs.

 

CPR researches, develops and implements evidence-based resilience programs that combine a low-cost ‘train-the-trainer’ methodology with rigorous certification. Delivered in partnership with governments, schools and local community-based organizations, our programs are effective, sustainable and scalable in even the most low-resourced settings.

 

Innovative Research. Measurable results.

To date, pilot programs with at-risk adolescents in low-income communities in the US and India have shown promising results, significantly improving mental health, school attendance and performance, and social skills and relationships. Projects are underway to establish evidence of program impact on physical health and academic achievement, with a focus on quantifying CPR program impact above and beyond the benefits achieved by traditional development interventions.

 

Our services ‘toolkit’ is drawn from the latest research in resilience, integrating evidence from the fields of positive psychology, social-emotional learning, emotional competence, and conflict resolution. Working in partnership with academics from leading institutions such as UCSF Global Health Sciences and the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Resiliency Project, all CPR programs are independently evaluated using rigorous quantitative and qualitative research.
