Implementing an intervention requires behavioral change. The body is the front line for implementing behavioral change.

Research shows that the body is the front line for all incoming information, from joy to fear to apathy. Based on this research RISE provides resilience training to healthcare professionals to develop and practice embodied self-awareness. This is a key element of one’s ability to maintain integrity in the face of challenges. RISE delivers to the acute care environment a simple yet effective way to create behavioral change in order to improve both workplace engagement and patient outcome.

In order to be effective any intervention requires behavioral change backed by personal motivation.  A key component of behavioral change is application: practicing the intervention in daily life.

Individual-directed interventions are effective when the outcome of the intervention is

  • Immediately recognized

  • Easily implemented

  • Able to be practiced

  • Satisfying to engage in
