ISRY - The Institute for Study of Resilience in Youth

The Institute for Study of Resilience in Youth (ISRY) is a research lab at McLean Hospital, affiliated with Harvard Medical School. We conduct evaluations, carry out research projects, develop tools, and convene leaders across research and practice. ISRY’s research examines the factors that impact the social-emotional wellbeing of youth and also the connection between science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and the social-emotional competencies highlighted by the Clover model.

The research posted below is work that has been conducted by researchers with ISRY.
