​​​​​​​​The STiR Office’s resiliency efforts ensure that the organization and its members have the resources necessary to recover from and respond to change or sudden disruptions with commitment and optimism.  This can take many forms, including ensuring our systems and processes are flexible enough to adapt quickly and having an infrastructure that can withstand sudden change.   


But it also means individual resiliency, providing the tools and resources necessary for recovery and healing for staff, their families, and those we love in the face of tragedy or upheaval.  What follows are links and resources that we hope will assist you on the road to recovery and resilience.   

​Think of resilience as similar to taking a raft trip down a river.  


On a river, you may encounter rapids, turns, slow water and shallows. As in life, the changes you experience affect you differently along the way. 


In traveling the river, it helps to have knowledge about it and past experience in dealing with it. Your journey should be guided by a plan, a strategy that you consider likely to work well for you. 


Perseverance and trust in your ability to work your way around boulders and other obstacles are important. You can gain courage and insight by successfully navigating your way through white water. 


Trusted companions who accompany you on the journey can be especially helpful for dealing with rapids, upstream currents and other difficult stretches of the river. 


You can climb out to rest alongside the river. But to get to the end of your journey, you need to get back in the raft and continue.
