Elaine Miller-Karas, LCSW, the key developer of the Trauma Resiliency Model, will present an introduction to the key concepts and basic skills of the model. The Trauma Resiliency Model is designed to teach wellness skills to clinicians working with children and adults experiencing traumatic stress reactions and to reprocess traumatic experiences. Using a mind-body approach, TRM views symptoms as normal biological responses rather than pathological or mental weaknesses. In this way, TRM can function as both a model for trauma reprocessing treatment and self-care. The TRM skills can be a stand-alone intervention. They can also be integrated into other treatment modalities, which have proven to be useful for social workers, marriage family therapists, psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, drug and alcohol counselors, and others who work with individuals who have experienced highly stressful and/or traumatic events.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

Participants will identify:

  1. Two or more key concepts of the Trauma Resiliency Model.
  2. Two or more foundational concepts of the Trauma Resiliency Model.
