The Community Resiliency Model (CRM) trains community members to help themselves and others within their wider social network. The goal of the CRM is to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system.
CRM skills help people understand their body’s natural response to stress and to learn to track sensations connected to their own well-being. The primary focus of this skills-based model is to reset the nervous system’s natural balance. In this three-hour introductory session, you will learn about strategies based on human biology and neuroscience which will strengthen the ability to cope when dealing with trauma, chronic stress, and/or bounce back faster from everyday normal stressors.
Laurie Strand, LCSW and founder of Resiliency Rising is the presenter for this three-hour afternoon session. Strand will introduce you to the CRM and will share some skills for practicing for wellness. She will return to McCall in the coming months for additional training opportunities (details to come).
