2019 Webinar Series: Building Resilient Communities
Thursday, August 8th, 2019
10:00AM PDT | 1:00PM EDT
This webinar will explore integrating a biological based model to reduce the impacts of toxic stress for children and adults. It is a model both for prevention and to use in the aftermath of adverse event. The Community Resiliency Model has been integrated into the Social, Emotional, and Ethical (SEE) Learning Program, a curriculum for schools K-12, inspired by his Holiness the Dalai Lama. SEE Learning™ provides educators with the tools they need to foster the development of emotional, social, and ethical intelligence for students and themselves.
You will learn:
- To identify one or more key concepts of the Community Resiliency Model
- To identify one or more reasons why a biological model is imperative as one of the strategies to implement in our efforts to reduce the impact of ACEs
- To identify the SEE Learning Program and its potential impact on our world community

"I attended Trauma Resource Institute’s, Community Resiliency Model training in August of 2018. I came away from TRI with a greater sense of self-awareness, a newfound understanding of what resiliency really is, and an eagerness to begin implementing the CRM skills in my day-to-day duties. Upon my return, I am happy to say I began utilizing my newfound skills-not only in a professional capacity, but also in a personal capacity. “ -Amy Gallardo, Child Interview Specialist, Multidisciplinary Coordinator, Kids Hope, Washington
