The Social Intelligence Institute is the culmination of a lifetime of work and research from Alex Zautra. An internationally renowned clinical psychologist, Alex dedicated his career to the study of psychological, social, and organizational roots of resilience, and the design of interventions that enhance well-being for individuals, organizations, and communities.
Beyond his career, Alex was the living embodiment of the value of social intelligence. His passion for life and the value of human connection was evident in each hiking trip, conversation, and inspired grad student.
While we lost Alex suddenly in June of 2016, his spirit lives on through the Social Intelligence Institute. Each module, discussion, and changed graduate at the end of the SI course are a tribute to his everlasting legacy. Alex’s wife, Eva, lovingly directs the Social Intelligence Institute.
