Community Resiliency Model (CRM)® - Understanding the Neurobiology of
Trauma and Resilience 
(Next program dates TBD)

The Community Resiliency Model (CRM)® was developed by Elaine Miller Karas at the Trauma Resource Institute. This training is conducted by The SEL Lab. 

About the training?

The Community Resiliency Model (CRM)® trains community members to not only help themselves, but to help others within their wider social network. The primary focus of CRM is to educate individuals about the biology and neurophysiology of trauma, stress and resilience as well as teach simple biologically-based wellness skills, which can help re-set and stabilize the nervous system. Through CRM, individuals learn to read sensations connected to their own well-being, which TRI calls the “Resilient Zone”. CRM’s goal is to help to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-informed and -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. These skills will help you learn how to calm down when you are upset so you can engage the challenges you face from the best part of yourself. Learning to read our bodies’ signals when we are in different “zones” can begin to help us understand the different ways we respond to stressful situations. On completing all six hours of the training you will be a 'CRM guide'.

What we cover in this training?

An understanding of resiliency from neurobiology, resilient zone, six resiliency skills, an understanding of the brain and the nervous system, trauma, intersectionality, ACES framework, Interoception & the insula, implicit and explicit memories, memory capsule, mirror neurons. 


Dates- TBD

Total Duration of the training - 6 hours

The training will be conducted online on Zoom.
