Connecting Lives By Finding The Strength Within

The Center for Educational Research + Development (CERD) is an internationally recognized non-profit focused on organizational development by applying resilience as a skill set to enhance functioning and meet desired outcomes. Because the focus is on your matters of concern relative to core assets common to most people’s interactions–to enhance communications, improve client relations, assess functioning/business strategies or conduct expert program/policy evaluation–CERD is successful in collaborating with any type and size organization, from airlines to schools.  With our proprietary thriving-by-experiencing approach, three services immediately get to the heart of your matters of concern, while initiating desired development on day one: (1) needs assessment/strategic planning; (2) program/policy evaluation and; (3) resilience awareness skills building/coaching. By focusing on your issues through assessment and/or skills building using a resilience lens together, we chart a focused, practical and affirming path to independently meet objectives; consultant dependency becomes a thing of the past and you thrive in meeting desired outcomes. Through nationally recognized and time-tested results CERD has proven its success time and again, promoting healthy organizations, children, families and communities, now, and for the long-term.

What Our Clients Say

The CERD team did a remarkable job in a complete evaluation of our Restorative Practices services, resulting in clear and actionable data with transforming results for our organization. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

Following a thorough needs assessment, a select group of leaders was trained in resilience education by the CERD team. Six years later, the training continues to positively impact our organization through shared vision and clear decision-making.
