R2: A Resilience-building Intervention

R2 is a program built on promising practices that have been shown to enhance wellbeing among individuals experiencing stress and adversity. It integrates the principles of a social ecological approach to resilience developed by Dr. Michael Ungar and his colleagues from all around the world who are part of the Resilience Research Centre.

Tailored Interventions

The R2 approach can be contextualized to fit the specific needs of your organization or business. To tailor the intervention, an R2 expert meets with members of your senior management team and those responsible for the health and wellbeing of staff to ensure the program is adapted to the specific challenges and opportunities people experience daily.

Every implentation of the R2 approach will:

  • Explore the general and specific risks faced by individuals in each work or service setting. 
  • Identify the right audience for the program. 
  • Format the program to ensure it fits each organizational setting and the time and resources each has to build resilience. 
  • Identify the range of resilience factors that are right for your setting. 
  • Make the training materials easily accessible to ensure the program is sustainable. 
  • Support the design of an evaluation to measure outcomes. 

Ready-to-use Programs

The R2 approach is available as an ‘off-the-shelf’ resilience-building program that any individual, organization, business or educational institution can access for a reasonable charge. Settings can also license a version of the R2 program for use by all their employees and those they serve, offering a cost-effective approach to improving resilience organization-wide.

Each version of R2 shows people how to build important protective factors for resilience that prepare them for everyday stressors experienced at home, work, school or in their communities. Each R2 program provides an engaging population-specific curriculum with plenty of activities based on content previously developed for different settings.

Expert Keynotes, Workshops & Webinars
