The Practitioner's Guide incorporates a comprehensive set of resources designed to support practitioners at every stage. These resources are linked and referenced throughout the guide, and presented in two formats:

  1. exercise worksheets that are meant to be completed by the practitioner, members of the planning team, or a combination; and
  2. additional guidance, with in-depth facilitation tips, presentation templates, sources of information, and collections of external resources or job aids.

Each step also includes an implementation example meant to highlight how communities and groups at different scales have approached aspects of the Steps to Resilience. Even if the framework chosen by the community varies, the examples show valuable lessons and experiences applicable to practitioners.
