Join Woodbine and Trauma Resource Institute (TRI) for a one day workshop offering fundamental wellness skills that we can use for ourselves and within our community to better understand and address trauma.
The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) trains community members to not only help ourselves but to help others within our wider social network. The primary focus of CRM is to educate people about the biology and neurophysiology of trauma as well as teach simple biologically-based wellness skills, which can help reset and stabilize the nervous system. Through CRM, we can learn to read sensations connected to our own well-being, which TRI calls the “Resilient Zone”. CRM’s goal is to help 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 and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skills-based approach.
CRM has been used worldwide, including in the United States, Mexico, Haiti, Guatemala, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Germany, the Ukraine, Serbia, Turkey, Sierra Leone, the Ivory Coast, Dafur, Uganda, Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Africa, Nepal, the Philippines and China.
Cost: Sliding Scale $75-$275 (includes participant handbook). Limited scholarships available.
Meals: Please bring a sack lunch. We will provide coffee, tea, and snacks.
