Webinar Description:
The Community Resilience Model (CRM) is a set of six wellness-based skills specifically designed to reset the natural balance of the nervous system after traumatic events or chronic stress/anxiety have led to physiological dysregulation. Based on the neuroscience of trauma, Somatic Experiencing (SE), and the biology of brain resiliency, participants will be taught about the brain’s “resilient zone,” and how to apply these skills of self-regulation to return to “the zone” when activated.   Straightforward, practical and easily taught, CRM skills can be applied and utilized in all types of experiential programming, including schools.  They can also be used as a powerful tool for self-care.
