All of us have a resiliency zone, a space in which we comfortably manage and tolerate the natural ups and downs of life. The resiliency zone is like a window, sometimes it’s wide open, sometimes open just a crack. Inside this zone is where we function most optimally supported by the resiliency available to us at that time.
In this free workshop, we'll offer you skillful and effective ways of managing and being in relationship with the natural experiences of stress and trauma - extreme, moderate, and low levels. It’s called the Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) developed by the Trauma Resource Institute. CRM offers a variety of easily accessible on-the-spot body-based tools that help balance and reset the nervous system. These wellness skills support the capacity to effectively respond to current stressors. The Community Resiliency Model® is widely used for cultivating long-lasting resiliency for individuals, organizations, and communities in general.
