Community Resiliency Model training at OAEC
May 25th - 26th
Stress, even trauma, is a part of life. An antelope that narrowly escapes a hunting lion undergoes a flight-or-flight adrenaline rush, yet quickly returns to grazing peacefully. If animals possess an innate resiliency to extreme duress, why do humans often rely on denial and self-medication to cope?
To address this, the Trauma Resource Institute (TRI) developed simple, skills-based interventions to bring the nervous system back into balance based on cutting-edge research about the brain and body. Their Community Resiliency Model (CRM) empowers community members to help each other move from despair to hope in the face of anxiety.
This May, the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center’s Permaculture program is collaborating with TRI to host a two-day CRM training.
- This training will benefit community leaders such as teachers, mental health workers, first responders, and veterans and their families.
- It is also relevant for Permaculture Designers working to create healthy intentional communities with members resilient to “burnout.”
Date: Course starts Saturday, May 25 at 8:30am and ends Sunday, May 26 at 5pm
