Become an Agent of Resilience Schools are starting, cases are trending, oppression is exposed. Now is the time to learn the science behind behavior and practical skills for addressing trauma and building resilience. This course is based on CRI’s capacity-building framework for building resilience, K.I.S.S. (Knowledge, Insight, Strategies and Structure). KISS is our blueprint for moving from theory to practice and how to implement evidence-based resilience strategies into action. The key objective is to provide information about identifying and responding to trauma with evidence-based resilience strategies when working with individuals whose trauma history may not be known. * Course 1 is a prerequisite for all other CRI courses  

We will cover:
  • N.E.A.R. sciences – emerging scientific findings in the fields of Neurology, Epigenetics, ACE Studies, and Resilience 
  • Beneath Behavior – the critical transition from Knowledge to Insight
  • ROLES – CRI’s signature strategies that take us below the tip of the proverbial iceberg (Recognize, Observe, Label, Elect and Solve)

Mind Matters’  lessons teach people aged 12 and up to respond to negative experiences with innovative methods based on  current research and neuroscience. These skills give individuals a way to take charge of their emotions and improve their states of mind. Participants learn to address their physical, relational, and mental health needs.
