Building hope, healing and LIFE.®
Procovery Institute, LLC. is a boutique consulting firm specializing in a proprietary methodology focused on the actions and mindset associated with optimizing the healing process.
Procovery focuses on the process of how individuals with serious and chronic illnesses, trauma, addiction, injuries and loss can build healthier and more fulfilling lives, notwithstanding the possible continuing presence or worsening of symptoms or circumstances. The concept of Procovery was created by writer Kathleen Crowley in 1996 and her program of Procovery principles and strategies, and Procovery Circles, resulted from years of research and interviews of individuals who found resilience, and those who supported and cared for them.
Kathleen Crowley, creator of the Procovery program, co-founded the Procovery Institute where she serves as Executive Director, and writes, lectures, and consults nationally on the Procovery program.
Crowley’s publications include:
The Day Room: A Memoir of Madness and Mending, Los Angeles: Kennedy Carlisle Publishing Co. (1996); Managing Depression with Chronic Pain, Lifeline, National Chronic Pain Outreach Association, Winter 1996; What is possible in psychiatry: Five psychiatric steps that mattered, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal, 19(4):85-87; Implementing the Concept of Recovery, Wisconsin Blue Ribbon Commission on Mental Health Final Report, State of Wisconsin, April 1997; The Power of Procovery in Healing Mental Illness: Just Start Anywhere.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
