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 now a nationwide initiative that aims to build health and resiliency within communities.

People that 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.

At the conclusion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify CRM skills for stress relief and relief from traumatic stress symptoms.
  2. Explain CRM skills to others .

Speakers: Tammy Blackard Cook (MA, LCSW, CDWF) and Erin Haley (MA, LMFTA)
