Training Details

Turning Stress, Distress, and Trauma into Resiliency

The Social Resilience Model will be presented as a practical approach to turn stress, distress, and trauma into resiliency. Anchored in neuroscience and the field of somatics, participants will learn practical skills to head off dysregulation before a stressful event and develop the capacity to grow and be creative during times of relative stability. After the workshop participants can expect to have gained new skills that reduce reactivity in the nervous system and increase resilience to improve relationships at home, work, or in the community.
Learning Objectives:

By attending the workshop, participants will:

  • Define and describe the window of tolerance and the rhythm of the nervous system,
  • Identify and apply the core concepts and SRM skills to connect back to safety.
  • Develop a personal profile of survival strategies and a unique resiliency plan.
  • Appreciate how the social-political environment supports or hinders our healing and well-being.
