Reconnect for Resilience (RFR): A two-day trauma informed, skills-based approach, was developed as a response to the public health crisis of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES).  Drawing from concepts taught in other somatic modalities such as Somatic Experiencing (SE) and the Community Resiliency Model (CRM).  Reconnect for Resilience offers participants a set of practical strategies to promote balance and well-being in the face of stress or trauma.

Schools and communities are becoming increasingly aware that emotional dysregulation among their members negatively impacts their ability to be resilient and to thrive. As a trauma informed curriculum, we teach how both acute and relational stress and trauma can throw the nervous system out of balance, and we offer simple, easy to learn and to teach tools to support our children, parents and community.
