Practitioner Tools

To support our mission of advancing both the science and practice of character, we work with practitioners all over the world to create strengths-based tools that will help professionals use character strengths to improve the lives of others. We appreciate the great work of these affiliates! A portion of the sales of these products is donated back to the VIA Institute.
