This two-day (14-hour) training is being used to provide interventions that incorporate a focus on the biological basis of threat, fear and resiliency. CRM focuses on the body’s innate ability to expand the sensations associated with resiliency in order to override the survival-based responses to threat and fear. The two 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. In addition, CRM can be used as self-care for those community members who are the front line workers, responding to crisis situations or who live in highly traumatized and/or marginalized communities. These two days will involve learning the neuroscience and the 6 CRM skills. There will be demonstrations and practices. Several schools in Asheville City and Buncombe are implementing CRM.
