Additional Information

The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) is a novel approach in trauma recovery and mental wellness that focuses on biologic and sensory-somatic techniques. A recent randomized controlled trial of CRM demonstrated improved well-being and reduced stress among nurses at risk for burnout. Because of its universal approach and ease-of-use, CRM skills are currently being taught in over 100 countries in a myriad of settings.

Limited to 20 participants, this free 3-hour virtual training will teach participants body-based self-care concepts and skills to recognize and develop resiliency resources from within to help them manage stress and trauma. Also, participants will have opportunity to engage in small group practice sessions with a certified CRM teacher.

Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to use the CRM skills for self-care, or for sharing one-on-one with patients, family, friends, and colleagues.

This training is brought to you by GNA, Resilient Georgia, and Resilient Middle Georgia.
