George Mason University’s Resilience Model
George Mason University’s Resilience Model represents the components of flourishing that we believe comprise a resilient human being. We believe that with the appropriate resources and support, a person can intentionally enhance each component in their own lives to build their resilience. Our resilience model was developed by the GMU’s Resilience Working group, a subset of individuals from the larger George Mason Well-Being University Learning Community dedicated to fostering resilience at Mason. We define resilience as enhancing the capacity for successful adaptation in the face of stress, challenge, and adversity. Explore the image below and click on the circles for more information.

These resilience resources can be used in workshops, classrooms, training programs, and other venues that promote learning and growth.
