Our trainings and staff consultations help employees to thrive

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from hardship and trauma and to thrive in challenging settings. Even dedicated, successful and experienced workers can flag under long-term pressures and difficult environments. The behavioral health literature on resilience is extensive and dates back to the late 1970s. Yet only recently has this resilience knowledge been incorporated into training given to employees serving in high threat environments from those supporting them in humanitarian and charitable organizations back home. Our resilience training is informed by current scientific research and is presented in a way that engages employees and helps them to be more effective in their personal and work lives.

Client Testimonials

  • "For the last six years, Dr. Sam Thielman, working through Still Waters Global, has been an exceptional benefit to our worldwide ministry to those suffering intense persecution and trauma. Sam has provided very needed expert training and technical advice both in one of our most difficult field areas in Asia and with regular meetings with our Africa and Middle East trauma care teams. We have greatly benefited from his long experience with trauma, resilience building and staff care in Africa and the Middle East – with the State Department - and with his eye toward cutting-edge, best practice and the latest research that propels our teams to a higher standard of care and practice. I would highly recommend Sam to consult with your organization."
