The Global Resilience and Inner Transformation (GRIT) Institute offers a Certified Resilience Trainer (CeRT) Program. The certification process trains individuals in the Stress Management and Resiliency Training (SMART) model developed by Dr. Sood.
Two decades of research by the team and others shows that helping people learn about their neural traps and finding ways to transcend them can undo most of our brain's vulnerabilities. The Resilient Option program helps overcome these traps in four modules:
Each module shares science, stories, and skills through short videos enriched by text, reading material, and quizzes. You advance in small manageable steps, and the overall approach is structured and progresses in a logical sequence that we have tested in dozens of studies. The program is self-paced and usually takes eight to twelve weeks to complete.
The in-person version, SMART - Stress Management and Resiliency Training, is highly effective for decreasing stress and anxiety, and enhancing resilience, wellbeing, mindfulness, and health behaviors.
