These are one to two-day retreats for intact teams experiencing some type of transition.

Mission Critical Psychology
Program Director:

Dr. Art Finch

Mission: Mission Critical Psychology was founded on a strength, or asset-based, framework focused on supporting operators to make meaning of the residue which emerges from their lived experiences. Individuals who have chosen the hard path continue to need the skills and knowledge to navigate their world without being labeled as broken or in need of fixing.

Mission Critical Story
Program Director:

Clare Murphy

Mission: To support individuals and MCTs in bringing intention and understanding to the narratives they use to describe themselves and their world and influence their destinies. MCTI believes that storytelling is not a soft skill but an ancient technology designed for increased understanding and retention and that MCTs are fundamentally communities with storytelling cultures.
