Bob Doppelt is the Executive Director of The Resource Innovation Group, a 20 year old non-profit affiliated with the Sustainability Institute at Willamette University. Since 2001 Bob has taught part time in the Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management at the University of Oregon. From 2001 to 2011 Bob directed the Climate Leadership Initiative in the Institute for a Sustainable Environment at the UO.

Bob is trained as a counseling psychologist and environmental scientist and has combined the two fields throughout his career. In addition, he is a longtime meditation teacher, a visiting teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and a Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Instructor through the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness.

Bob’s primary focus has been methods to help individuals and groups shift their thinking and behaviors to avoid personal mental health and psycho-social-spiritual maladies generated by socio-economic-environmental traumas. He has written three best-selling books on different aspects of personal, organizational, and institutional change: Leading Change Toward Sustainability (2003) Greenleaf Publishing (UK); The Power of Sustainable Thinking (2008) Earthscan Publishing (UK); and From Me to We (2013) Greenleaf Publishing.

His newest book, Transformational Resilience: How Building A Culture of Human Resilience Can Safeguard Society and Increase Wellbeing, describes the Resilient Growth model that Bob developed which helps individuals, organizations and communities use natural and human caused traumas and toxic stresses as catalysts to learn, grow and thrive. The model can be applied before, during and after adversities.
