Elaine Miller-Karas, the key developer of the Community Resiliency Model (CRM), will share the model’s key concepts and basic skills. She will share how the skills of CRM can be used to restore the mind, body, and spirit to well-being during and after stressful situations. The skills of CRM can be used both for self-care and for clients. The Community Resiliency Model is biologically based, educating about the autonomic nervous system and how the body responds to stress. CRM skills help to stabilize emotions, resulting in more adaptive thinking when facing emotional and physical distress. The Community Resiliency Model has distilled the complexity of neuroscience into simple, understandable concepts. This approach helps children and adults understand the common human responses to stressful and traumatic events through a lens of biology. The Community Resiliency Model has been integrated into programs globally, helping individuals who have experienced domestic violence and sexual assaults.
