SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Master Resilience Training, or MRT, is now being offered to Soldiers, families and Army civilians, here. 

Offered through Army Community Service, classes teach problem solving, assertive communication, stress/anxiety management, energy management and much more.

MRT uses the fundamentals of Comprehensive Soldier Fitness to teach the five dimensions of holistic well-being: social, emotional, family, spiritual and physical. The concept is based on proven results of positive psychology, in numerous environments. 

Training aims to increase self-awareness, self-regulation, optimism, mental agility, character strengths and connections. Resiliency training is for singles, married couples, parents or professionals looking to improve their effectiveness and discover greater purpose. 

Units, family readiness groups and communities can request tailored classes. Also, regularly scheduled classes will be offered in different locales throughout the community.

The first round of MRT classes will be held in conjunction with Family Night at the Main Post Chapel, Schofield Barracks: 

  • Oct. 20: “Seeking Hope: How managing our thoughts influences our reactions to stressful events and energy management.” 
  • Oct. 27: “Thinking traps, and identifying deep beliefs and core values that fuel out-of-proportion emotion.” 
  • Nov. 3: “Problem solving and putting it into perspective.” 
  • Nov. 10: “Character strengths and real-time resilience.” 
  • Nov. 17: “Assertive communication and active, constructive responding and praise.”

To register, call an ACS resiliency trainer at 655-4227, or e-mail regina.peirce@us.army.mil. Preregistration is requested. 

Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m., and classes will run 6-7:30 p.m.

Child care is available for children registered with Child, Youth and School Services.
