An Infopeople Hosted Webinar

Presenters: Jennifer Burton, LMFT, CEAT, CDW-C, Trauma Resource Institute; Deborah Takahashi, MLIS, Pasadena Public Library

As part of the 2016-2017 California State Library (CSL) Mental Health Initiative, library staff, teens, and youth advocates are invited to learn more about the Community Resiliency Model (CRM). CRM’s goal is to help to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skills-based approach.

This 45-minute CRM (Community Resiliency Model) presentation will focus on learning some key concepts of neurobiology and education about stress/trauma, which are the foundation for learning CRM Skills. While the presentation will touch on these skills in relation to youth, the focus will be on using skills for self-care. Two CRM Skills will be taught to participants (if time permits, a third skill will be included). Following the presentation, there will be 15-minutes for questions and answers.

This webinar will be of interest to: library staff, educators, parents, teens, youth advocates, and mentors.
