I am a Certified Trainer for the Community Resiliency Model (CRM)®, one of the models designed by the Trauma Resource Institute. CRM® is a skills-based approach that teaches individuals, groups, and communities to become more resilient by using natural biological and physiological processes that all humans have. By learning and practicing the CRM® skills, people discover a different relationship to their bodies and their environments that lends them a greater capacity to meet challenging, adverse, and/or traumatic life experiences while also managing and thriving in their normal, everyday lives. CRM® skills foster a deeper connection with oneself which ultimately leads to a deeper connection with others. The more these connections are maintained, both within the self and within relationships, groups, and communities, the more resilience grows.
The skills of the Community Resiliency Model® are meant to be shared with others, which is why CRM® is in high demand. When used and practiced, the CRM® skills can shift a corporate, school, group, or home environment from one of frustration and anxiety to one of resilience and hope. This workshop goes a step beyond creating ‘trauma-informed’ communities to creating ‘resiliency-informed’ communities.
I teach this model by request, and it’s available online or in-person. The Community Resiliency Model® is customizable from a one-hour keynote to a complete multi-day workshop, or anything in-between.
