The Resilient Mindset ModelTM

The Resilient Mindset ModelTM serves as a framework for understanding the brain in order to help people make mindfully resilient choices.  Mindfulness is the focusing of attention and awareness.  The idea behind the model is that by becoming consciously aware of what is happening in the brain, we are empowered to make more mindful, intentional choices.

Created by an educator, Donna Volpitta, Ed.D., a neuroscientist, Princy Quadros Mennella, Ph.D. and a designer, Dian Wessels, this model uses four characters to illustrate different brain areas and functions:


These fun-loving characters bring the brain to life to help people to understand why they make the choices that they do and how they can begin to have more power over those choices.
