Boulder Crest Institute for Posttraumatic GrowthSM

We evaluate the impact of PTG-based interventions and training to
refine and scale best practices. We conduct clinical and
non-clinical research into PTG.

The plural of ‘anecdote’ is not ‘data.’

Boulder Crest Institute is an organization dedicated to innovation and transformation within and across the mental health world. As we develop new solutions and programs, it is critical that we study them, in depth, to demonstrate not only their efficacy, but underlying explanations for their effectiveness. With our breakthrough Warrior PATHH program, we have began that effort with an 18-month longitudinal Program Evaluation, conducted by Dr. Richard Tedeschi and Dr. Bret Moore. Moving forward, we intend to work towards more robust and comprehensive studies, that will ensure that PATHH programs receive the scrutiny and evidence they deserve and require. 

In addition, while Posttraumatic Growth has been the subject of more than 600 articles, publications, and papers over the past three decades, there remains a great deal to understand about how to cultivate and facilitate PTG. 

As an Institute, we are committed to continuing to expand the depth and breadth of PTG research, and research into the application of PTG in programmatic formats (including PATHH).
