"The Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM): Processing and Healing from Trauma"
Presented By: Kim Cookson, Psy.D.
This presentation focuses on TRM as a mind-body approach that explores the concept of resiliency and the restoring of balance to the body and mind after traumatic experiences. It will include a brief overview of how trauma is processed in the brain differently than ordinary events and will describe some of the body based resiliency skills which clinicians may use. When the focus is on normal biological responses to extraordinary events, there is a paradigm shift from symptoms being described as biological rather than as pathological or as mental weakness.
