Community Resiliency Model

Community Resiliency Model is a part of .

The Community Resiliency Model™ (CRM) of the Trauma Resource Institute trains community members to not only help themselves but to help others within their wider social network.

The primary focus of this skills-based, stabilization program is to re-set the natural balance of the nervous system. CRM skills help individuals understand their nervous system and learn to read sensations connected to their own well-being, which CRM calls the “Resilient Zone”.

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.

Goals of CRM™

  • To learn simple biologically based skills, based upon current neuroscience, to help individuals get back into balance in body, mind and spirit.
  • To educate about common reactions resulting from individual or communal traumas/stresses such as poverty, racism and family violence.
  • To reduce common human reactions related to stressful/traumatic experiences.
  • To shift perceptions that reactions are biological rather than mental weakness in order to reduce shame and increase hope.
  • To encourage individuals to integrate wellness skills into their daily life.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training is a part of .

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is for everyone 16 or older—regardless of prior experience—who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.
Virtually anyone age 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. Developed in 1983 and regularly updated to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. During the two-day interactive session, participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk. 

Workshop features:

  • Presentations and guidance from two LivingWorks registered trainers
  • A scientifically proven intervention model
  • Powerful audiovisual learning aids
  • Group discussions
  • Skills practice and development
  • A balance of challenge and safety

Crossroads (NCTI)

Crossroads (NCTI) is a part of .

Since 1981, Crossroads (NCTI) has been developing offense-specific, cognitive curricula and staff development training for use in the criminal justice system. NCTI is a leader of cognitive behavior change programs. 

NCTI has developed a variety of skill-based training resources, including participant workbooks for juveniles and adults, facilitator guides and teaching aides. These training resources are organized into delivery formats that vary in intensity level and duration to more appropriately meet the needs and address the risk level of offenders, whether misdemeanants or felons.

NCTI assists criminal justice agencies in two specific areas. The first area focuses on developing and providing offense-specific curricula designed to address the learning styles of the offender population, both adult and juvenile. NCTI’s cognitive curricula uses, as its foundation, a unique philosophical approach called the "Building Blocks for Behavioral Change", that align with evidence-Based research. The second area focuses on training criminal justice professionals in a host of areas that challenge them to strengthen their skills both personally and professionally.
