Descript. & Object.

Description for the TRM Level 1 Training

Trauma Resiliency Model(TRM) Level 1 Training is a three-day course designed to teach skills to clinicians  working with children and adults with traumatic stress reactions. TRM explores the biology of fear and threat and the automatic, natural defensive responses that occur when faced with a life-threatening and/or dangerous situation.   Most importantly, this model explores the concept of resiliency and how to restore balance to the body and the mind after traumatic experiences. When the focus is on normal biological responses to extraordinary events, there is a paradigm shift from symptoms being described as biological rather than as pathological or as mental weakness.  As traumatic stress symptoms are normalized, feelings of shame and self-blame are reduced or eliminated. Symptoms are viewed as the body’s attempt to re-establish balance to the nervous system.

Objectives for the TRM Level 1 Training

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

1. describe three or more key concepts of the Trauma Resiliency Model
2. describe three or more ways traumatic experiences affect the mind and body based on current scientific research.
3. describe the parasympathetic and sympathetic arms of the autonomic nervous system and their impact on traumatic stress symptoms.
4. describe TRM’s definition of trauma.
5. describe and implement the nine skills of the Trauma Resiliency Model.
6. describe the 6 skills of the Community Resiliency Model.
7. identify 2 or more ethical considerations with regard to implementing TRM.
