CRI Course 1 LIVE WEBCAST: Trauma-Informed Training (prerequist for TOT)

A dynamic 2 part six-hour LIVE WEBCAST course, Course 1 introduces CRI’s capacity-building framework for building resilience, KISS. Knowledge, Insight, Strategies and Structure describes our community’s learning and movement from theory to practice and how to implement evidence-based strategies into action. The training includes three groups of topics: the NEAR sciences, a cluster of emerging scientific findings in the fields of Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACE Study, and Resilience; Brain States, the critical transition from Knowledge to Insight; and ROLES, CRI’s signature training on Recognize, Observe, Label, Elect and Solve, core strategies that take us below the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The key objective is to provide information about identifying and responding to trauma with evidence-based resilience strategies when working with an audience whose trauma history may not be known.

Dates: July 15 & 18, 2019

Time: 9:00am to 12:00pm both days

Please note that this training takes place on July 15 & 18, 2019 from 9am - 12pm for six hours of training. You must attend both days of training to complete Course 1. Information is not repeated.
