CRM Basic Two-Day Training

The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) is a groundbreaking wellness initiative that provides a non-judgmental perspective on normal human reactions to stress or trauma. The primary focus of this skills-based model is to reset the nervous system’s natural balance. The CRM skills help people understand their nervous system and learn to track sensations connected to their own well-being. Using the wisdom of their own bodies, people experience rapid relief from stress-related symptoms, as well as an increased sense of control over future wellness. 

The CRM model is easily learned and accessible regardless of age, culture or educational level. The tools gained in this workshop are useful for self- care and can be taught as a peer-to- peer intervention in a variety of contexts. CRM is a tremendous resource for individuals coping with chronic stress. Participants are encouraged to pass the skills along to family, friends and their wider social network. People who have highly stressful life situations, jobs, and/or work with individuals experiencing stress or trauma can use the CRM skills. CRM skills are being used in hospitals, classrooms, community centers and faith communities across the US.

Join clinicians Tammy Blackard Cook, LCSW, Marilyn Young, LCSW and Drew Pledger, LCSW, for this life-changing workshop.

Created by the Trauma Resource Institute in California, CRM is now a nationwide initiative that aims to build health and wellness within communities. For more information about the Community Resiliency Model contact:
