MASTER RESILIENCE TRAINING (MRT) @ The Chapel Army Community Service (ACS) Hawaii will offer MRT training at Family Night. Spouses, Couples, and Civilians are all welcome to enjoy us as we learn skills that have been shown through research to promote strong relationships, healthy communication, and stress management. Wednesdays, 5 October - 30 November 1815-1930 Dinner at 1730; childcare provided

What is MRT? Resilience is not only the ability to bounce back from adversity - but also to GROW and THRIVE from those challenging experiences. We can enhance our resilience, effectiveness, and well being by using skills that build competence and contribute to resilience. MRT classes allow Spouses and Couples to learn those skills and then to apply those skills to their daily life. Learn resilience. Live resilience.

For more information about MRT or to coordinate an MRT event for your organization, contact Dr. Brandi Chew at 808.655.0562
