Where the money goes

Updated: Nov 7

The following is a list of organizations that have received funds from Challenge 22

22Zero

We have two distinct processes, the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) for trauma and the Emotions Management Process (EMP) for negative emotions and self-limiting belief structures. We train men and women in the active-duty military: first responders, emergency medical personnel, National Guard units, military reserves, veterans, and medical personnel. They learn skills that they will use immediately to build the resiliency skills necessary to bounce back from trauma and significant emotional events and coach others through the same process. The training requires the members to go through the Tactical Resiliency Process (TRP) and Emotions Management Process (EMP), working on their own emotions and traumas. The TRP and EMP processes use zero content from the person’s events. Let us train your organization to build ready and resilient minds.
