Resiliency in the News (Bing)
What in the heck is a Resilitator???
A "Resilitator™" is a mash-up of the words Resiliency and Facilitator. Certified Resiliency Trainers, or 'Resilitators,' have gone through a personalized training program to show their mastery of resiliency training based on the philosophy of Al Siebert. Learn how you can become a Resilitator!
The Al Siebert Resiliency Center is located in Portland, Oregon. Founded by the late Al Siebert, PhD, in 2006, our mission is to develop human resiliency around the world to master change, thrive under pressure and bounce back from setbacks.
Today, the ASRC is operated by Director Molly Siebert, Lead Resilitator Glen Fahs, Certified Resiliency Facilitator Michelle Atlas, and Al's niece and long-time assistant, Kristin Pintarich.
The Al Siebert Resiliency Center works in cooperation with Practical Psychology Press (also founded by the late Al Siebert), to offer resiliency workshops, materials and trainings.
