Join us for an upcoming seminar with Elaine Miller-Karas, the Director and co-founder of the Trauma Resource Institute (TRI). Elaine Miller-Karas’ presentation will highlight the key concepts of the Community Resiliency Model (CRM), named a “promising practice” by the DoD. She will also share recent research findings about the effectiveness of biologically-based models of intervention and her experience teaching CRM to veterans, active duty military and their family members through the Trauma Resiliency Model – Veteran and Warrior project.
The fundamental goals of the Community Resiliency Model are to help adults and children learn to track their own nervous systems, to bring the body, mind and spirit back into greater balance and to encourage people to pass the skills along to family, friends and their wider community. CRM can be taught as a peer-to-peer program, training community members to help themselves and others. CRM can also be used for self-care for those community members who are the front line workers, responding to crisis situations or who live in highly traumatized communities.
