The Penn Resilience Program and PERMA™ Workshops have been demonstrated to build resilience, well-being, and performance. These strengths-based programs equip individuals with a set of practical skills that can be applied in everyday life to navigate adversity and thrive in challenging environments, personal and professional. We deliver programs in-person or virtually.
Penn has experience infusing resilience throughout many levels of an organization. Programs can be delivered to a wide variety of audiences and our instructors can deliver programs anywhere around the globe.

Train-the-Trainer Model. Penn has a proven train-the-trainer model, in which we train people how to teach the resilience skills to others. We have effectively trained more than 60,000 trainers who have diverse educational and subject matter backgrounds. These trainers have gone on to teach the resilience skills to more than one million people, including health care professionals, school students, U.S. Army personnel, U.S. law enforcement personnel, among others. This train-the-trainer model is scalable and sustainable - each trainer Penn trains can teach the resilience skills to hundreds if not thousands of people over time.
