Community Resiliency Model

WIC CIAO Project: Community Resiliency Model

Resiliency Skills – Taking Care of Ourselves and Our Community

Come learn about the Community Resiliency Model (CRM) to help strengthen your wellness with quick, simple skills.  CRM is a biological model that teaches us how our mind and body are connected.  CRM helps us understand how stress and trauma affect us, our nervous systems, and our emotions and behaviors. It gives us wellness skills to build resilience.  This biological model empowers us with simple wellness skills to get us back into our resilient zone where we are more calm, focused, and functioning as our best self.  We believe that when we empower ourselves with skills to regulate, we will be empowered to provide a more calm, regulated environment for those we support.  Participants will leave refreshed after practicing these resiliency skills and leave with practical tools to immediately apply with clients, coworkers, and the larger community!

CEU: This organization (Worthy Well Empowered LLC, approval ID#1055) is approved as a provider for continuing education by the: South Dakota Board of South Work Examiners.  Social Workers will receive 3 Continuing Education clock hours for participating in this course.
