  Screening of Resilience – Resilience is a 60-minute film that explores the science behind Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Directed by James Redford, it not only explains how exposure to trauma affects a child’s brain but also demonstrates how toxic stress increases the risk of a lifetime of negative health outcomes, even early death. Contact Rebecca Martin to schedule a screening.
   
  Community Resiliency Model CRM®The (CRM)® trains community members to not only help themselves but to help others within their wider social network. The primary focus of this skills-based, stabilization program is to re-set the natural balance of the nervous system. CRM’s goal is to help to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skills-based approach.
