The Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM) is a biologically-based intervention based upon current neuroscience. TRM explains the common responses after a traumatic experience from a biological perspective, which reframes the human experience from what is often one of shame and pathology to one of hope and biology. TRM is a comprehensive treatment that offers concrete and practical skills to restore resiliency coupled with education about the biology of trauma.
There is a rapidly growing body of neuroscience research showing that the part of the brain responsible for verbal processing and introspection are not functioning at their optimal level when under stress and after traumatic events. Thus, there is a need for interventions which incorporate a focus on the biological basis of threat, fear, and resiliency. The key concepts of TRM will be presented along with the rationale and introduction to four of the nine skills of TRM. Attendees will have an opportunity to practice the four skills.
