What is the Master Resilience Training Course?

The Master Resilience Training Course is a course that will produce junior leaders with the capability to teach proven resilience skills to the Soldiers in their teams, squads, and platoons in order to enhance their performance and increase their resiliency, both individually and collectively. The Master Resilience Training Course is an established training program that has demonstrated efficacy in reducing behavioral health problems.

Soldiers will review the myths about resilience and why resilience is critical for success and well-being, and they learn about the scientific literature of the core factors that predict resilience, with a specific focus on the factors that are amenable to change. Ideally, Soldiers taking this course will return to the force as Drill Sergeants, Squad Leaders, Platoon Sergeants and Platoon Leaders, First Sergeants and Company Commanders, and they will be expected to train these skills to those Soldiers in their unit. Additionally, they will serve as subject matter experts for their commanders.

Soldiers will learn resiliency and performance enhancing skills and how to teach them. These skills have proven efficacy in contributing to the success of teams and leaders, families, students, executives and military personnel. Skills learned include goal setting, energy management, emotion awareness and regulation, impulse control, de-catastrophizing, putting it in perspective, effective communication, challenging negative beliefs, problem solving, and real time resilience. Additionally, several techniques proven successful by elite sports figures and athletes will be introduced, such as imagining success, goal setting, and energy management.

Welcome to the U.S. Army Master Resilience School

Dear Student:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Army Master Resilience School (AMRS), home of the Master Resilience Training (MRT) Level I and Level II Courses here at Fort Jackson. The Level I MRT Course is a key component of the Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) Program, which is a part of the Ready & Resilient (R2C) Campaign. The program was established by the Chief of Staff of the Army in 2008 to increase emotional resilience and enhance performance in Soldiers, Family Members and DA Civilians. The concept behind the CSF2 program, as it relates to resilience, is simple: being Army Strong is about much more than being physically fit; it is about mental and emotional strength, as well.

The MRT Course is dynamic and interactive, with large and small group training. You will be taught resilience skills, how to apply them and how to instill these skills in others. You will complete this course with a deeper sense of self-awareness and optimism. As a Soldier, you will also gain the ability to recognize and capitalize on your strengths and the strengths of others while being resilient in all areas of life.

Again, I welcome you to a course that promises to be thought-provoking, inspiring and skill-building. I am confident that you will find this to be some of the best Army training you have ever experienced. Master Resilience Training has the potential to change the way you think, respond and live.

Sincerely,

John P. O'Rourke, Course Director
U.S. Army Master Resilience School
