January 16, 2015

The ICT Stress Resilience in Virtual Environments (STRIVE) project received an Army Modeling and Simulation Award  in the Army-wide Training Team category. The award recognized outstanding work on the immense challenge of developing human dimension resilience skills for Soldiers. Skip Rizzo, the principal investigator on the STRIVE project stated that the recognition of the importance of resilience training in advance of a military deployment has becom more recognized by the Army and could lead to lower rates of posttraumatic stress in Service Members when they return home.

The award was presented to an interdisciplinary team of experts at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference held in Orlando Fl. in December 2014.
