This virtual session will introduce participants to the Community Resiliency Model® (CRM), its evidence-based benefits, and the 3-hour training. CRM concepts help people understand their autonomic nervous system's responses and, as they learn to track sensations connected to their own wellbeing, they may live life more fully.

This free virtual session is open to anyone in the community and will introduce participants to the Community Resiliency Model® (CRM). CRM is a skills-based wellness and prevention program that provides a biological, non-stigmatizing perspective on normal human reactions to stress and trauma. CRM concepts help people understand their autonomic nervous system responses and, as they learn to track sensations connected to their own wellbeing, they may live life more fully. The primary focus of this self-care stabilization program is to learn techniques to reset the natural balance of the nervous system.
CRM was developed in international disaster situations and will be of immediate use to Georgia nurses under the strains of the current Coronavirus pandemic. CRM can be a shared language for talking about the pressures of the pandemic and the inherently stressful nature of front-line work. In addition, it helps individuals who cope with chronic or cumulative stress, e.g., front-line workers and persons chronically exposed to violence, poverty, or racism.
The adoption of a program such as CRM at an organizational level will allow individual healthcare workers to gain resiliency skills, and in the presence of organization support for a resiliency culture, it may be expected that there will be reduced occupational stress, burnout, mental health compromise, and turnover.
