This toolkit is intended to teach people about community resilience so that they can then educate others about resilience and resilience building. It uses a train-the-trainer approach. The LEARN section of the toolkit educates community members or organizations about basic community resilience concepts by providing definitions, stories, and additional resources. The TELL section provides tips, talking points, games, and exercises about resilience to help users teach others about resilience. In addition to community members, organizations can use this toolkit to communicate with their staff and service populations about resilience.
The research behind this toolkit was funded by a Public Health Emergency Preparedness Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and conducted within RAND Health, a division of the RAND Corporation.
