U.S. ARMY MASTER RESILIENCY SCHOOL
The Master Resilience Training Course is a course that will produce junior leaders with the capability to teach proven resilience skills to the Soldiers in their teams, squads and platoons in order to enhance their performance and increase their resiliency, both individually and collectively. The Master Resilience Training Course is an established training program that has demonstrated efficacy in reducing behavioral health problems.
Soldiers will review the myths about resilience and why resilience is critical for success and well-being and will learn about the scientific literature of the core factors that predict resilience, with a specific focus on the factors that are amenable to change. Ideally, Soldiers taking this course will return to the force as drill sergeants, squad leaders, platoon sergeants and platoon leaders, first sergeants and company commanders, and they will be expected to train these skills to those Soldiers in their unit. Additionally, they will serve as subject matter experts for their commanders.
Soldiers will learn resiliency and performance-enhancing skills and how to teach them. These skills have proven efficacy in contributing to the success of teams and leaders, families, students, executives and military personnel. Skills learned include emotion awareness and regulation, impulse control, de-catastrophizing, putting it in perspective, effective communication, challenging negative beliefs, problem-solving and real-time resilience. Additionally, several techniques proven successful by elite sports figures and athletes will be introduced, such as imagining success, goal setting and energy management.
