Community Resilience Model: An Introduction

Early Registration $49 | Registration $69

Join us for Community Resilience Model: An Introduction with Sue Mann

The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) is a groundbreaking wellness initiative created by the Trauma Resource Institute. It uniquely provides a non-judgmental perspective on normal human reactions to stress or trauma and encourages people to pass the skills along to their family, friends, and wider communities. The skills gained from the Community Resiliency Model (CRM) help people understand their nervous system and learn to track sensations connected to their own well-being. Using the wisdom of their own bodies, people experience rapid relief from symptoms accompanied by increased sense of control over future wellness. Participants will come away with tools for self-care, as well as with skills they can share with family, friends and their wider social network. People who play a role in responding to stress and trauma – in hospitals, classrooms, community centers, faith communities and neighborhoods – find CRM to be tremendously valuable. Resilient people not only get back on their feet after a fall, they create meaning from their falls that positively transforms their lives and their communities.

Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model of Therapy

Early Registration $149 | Registration $169

Join us for Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model of Therapy with Derek Scott

Through a variety of teaching methods, participants will develop an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the model and what differentiates it from other models. Participants will develop further understanding of the challenge of the multiplicity paradigm, the personality as system, the specific roles parts play as well as how healing occurs within the Internal Family System Model, including the Role of Self and facilitating the Self-to-Part connection.

The day will start with a psycho-dramatic illustration of the model followed by a didactic presentation with lots of time for Q&A. After this, participants will be invited into an experiential exercise to identify some of their own parts. The afternoon will consist of a teaching video and live demonstration with a volunteer. We will wrap up the day with the opportunity for further questions to be answered and to discuss next steps.

This course offers 7 CEU credits for LMSWs, LMFTs, and LMHCs.
