  • TRI hosted its first Community Resiliency Model Conference in 2012. Over 150 people were in attendance. The participants included many of the individuals who had been trained in the Community Resiliency Model Train the Trainer Program. We had representatives from the African-American, Latino, GLBTQ, Asian-Pacific Islander and Veteran communities. Panel members expressed how they are using the CRM skills not only for self-care but for their communities. The conference was a manifestation of the core beliefs of TRI to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-informed” communities.
  • TRI has had a long association with DBH and its staff where the utility of TRM® has been found to be a helpful intervention for the underserved communities of San Bernardino County. DBH has its own TRM trainers through a Train the Trainer Program that began in 2008. Their own TRI trainers have now trained over 500 clinicians.  91% of the staff found TRM skills effective.
  • FIRESTORMS-SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY – 2007 TRI was asked by the Department of Behavioral Health to provide TRM interventions to the displaced persons who had evacuated the mountain communities of San Bernardino County. TRI mobilized a team who helped in the shelters at the Orange Show Fairgrounds.
