Vision and Mission


The Generative Culture Research Initiative (GCRI) envisions a general feeling of emotional safety in U.S. culture that leads to a milieu of cutting-edge creativity and resourcefulness; individual and public health; and policies that produce well-being for present and future generations.


Our mission is to reduce individuals' sense of emotional unsafety - operating outside awareness and influencing all interactions - through an award-winning expressive writing process called 'life writing.'


Our goal is disseminating life writing across the United States.
