Helping People Develop New Behavior
Pathways to Overcome Their Challenges


The Circle of Courage is a course based on brain science and traditional teachings to help workers manage behavioural difficulties.  The focus is an individual's well-being and encompasses four shared core values: belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity, as signified in the Circle of Courage model of youth development.

We have certified trainers of Response Ability Pathways (RAP) methods from the Circle of Courage.  The Circle of Courage program is grounded in research evidence on resilience, brain science, and positive psychology.  Our training offers practical methods, positive behaviour support, while dealing with problems by focusing on strengths and solutions in a climate of respect.
