About The Stress & Resilience Institute

WELCOME TO THE STRESS & RESILIENCE INSTITUTE

The Davis Laack Stress & Resilience Institute studies the effects of stress and burnout on organizations and busy professionals and delivers cutting edge programs designed to increase thriving at work, prevent burnout, and build resilience to stress.

We translate cutting edge research in the areas of stress, burnout, and resilience into practical strategies for health, personal success, and building a stronger, more resilient you.

We also translate this research into practical strategies for companies who want to lessen the effects of burnout on their employees and build a more resilient, thriving, and engaged workplace.
