Welcome to Family Research & Services

FRS is an award-winning applied research program focused on the development and evaluation of optimization programs with the help of friends, families, and other support systems. Goal-achievement is conceptualized through optimal regulation of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are consistent with a positive outlook and state of well-being.

Approaching mental health holistically, the optimization programs at FRS are developed to be applicable to all aspects and levels of life performance across a diverse range of people, ages and occupations, such as artists, athletes, business men and women, students and so on. Scientists at FRS are involved in training professionals to use these scientifically developed methods with integrity.
