TRI amplifies focus on resilience

Department news | May 31, 2022

Trauma Recovery Innovations (TRI), co-directed by Kristen Lindgren, PhD, and Michele Bedard-Gilligan, PhD, is changing its name to Trauma Recovery and Resilience Innovations. The acronym will stay the same, but the team is changing its name to acknowledge their work and passion for adapting and disseminating strategies and interventions to build resilience in the wake of mass adversity and chronic stressors — an especially urgent need over the last two plus years. At TRI, they are passionate about educating clinicians, patients and the public on the scientific understanding of resilience following adversity and about applying empirically-supported principles to support the mental health and wellbeing of individuals and communities affected by stressors. The team thanks the department and their wonderful colleagues for their support as they continue to grow this part of their program.
