“True Grit” is positive, evidence-informed, practical, empowering, engaging, motivating—and FUN! It is packed with skill-based tools that stem from evidence-informed factors that promote resilience in military and other populations, adapted to corrections employees’ work and home life realities.

The course combines research findings on psychological and neurophysiological correlates of resilience (presented in comprehensible lay language) with the addressing of occupational demands, work/home life balance issues, and health concerns faced by the corrections workforce.

The “True Grit” training includes individual exercises, action plans, and small group work.
