|- Brief summary||Background: Resilience is the capacity to deal with adversity and traumatic events. Research on the effects of resilience training in the workplace is limited and there is no research available from studies in non-Western countries.
Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of a cultural adapted multi-component positive psychology program on resilience, positive mental health, anxiety, depression, stress, work engagement, psychological flexibility and financial distress.
Method/Design: A randomized trial will be conducted among employees in Paramaribo, Suriname. Employees will be divided into an intervention group and a waiting list control group. The intervention group will undergo a culturally sensitive resiliency training program consisting of six modules.
Results: The primary outcome will be resilience. Secondary outcomes are positive mental health, depression, anxiety, stress, work engagement, psychological flexibility and financial distress.
Discussion: This study will be the first randomized trial to measure the effects of a resilience training program in non-Western organizations. The program aims at enhancing the skills of employees in Suriname for better coping with the adversities they encounter in their daily lives during an economic crisis.
