Self-Regulation: Creating Habits of Ease

Live Webinar

Trauma and toxic stress impact our nervous system, brain, health, and epigenetics. Trauma impacts the developing brain and can set up a cascade of effects across the health and life trajectory.

The restorative practices of Self-Regulation allow us to care for the nervous system and brain – restoring our natural wholeness and brilliance. We are growing the EASE where the learning is done.

When the nervous system is balanced and the brain receives more circulation, the learning parts of our brain light up. We come out of survival mode. When we feel safe and connected the body can enter the restorative state of self-regulation.

Four part series held on Zoom from 9:00 am – 10:30 am Pacific Time:

  • September 24th
  • October 1st
  • October 8th

Introduction to the Science of Trauma and Resilience

On-Demand

Choose your start date and take the course at your own pace.

This dynamic mini-course introduces you to the science of trauma and resilience: the NEAR sciences, a cluster of emerging scientific findings in the fields of Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACE Studies, and Resilience.

Learn the basics of trauma and resilience with Rick Griffin, the Executive Director of the Community Resilience Initiative.

Course 1: Trauma-Informed

On-Demand

Choose your start date and take the course at your own pace.

This self-paced, six-part training course introduces you to Community Resilience Initiative’s framework for building resilience, KISS: Knowledge, Insight, Strategies, and Structures. KISS describes our learning from theory to practice and how to implement strategies into action. 

This course includes three groups of topics: the NEAR sciences, a cluster of emerging scientific findings in the fields of Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACE Studies, and Resilience; Beneath Behavior, which uses the knowledge of brain networks to gain insight into the factors that drive behavior; and R.O.L.E.S., CRI’s signature strategy to responding to trauma. 

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.
