The Rappahannock Area Community Services Board (RACSB) is pleased to bring the Community Resilience Initiative (CRI) Course 1: Trauma-Informed and Course 2: Trauma-Supportive Certifications to our community.
CRI has developed courses to teach parents, schools, medical professionals, mental health practitioners, and any community member interested in learning more about toxic stress and how individuals and communities can build resilience across the lifespan.
CRI COURSE 2: TRAUMA-SUPPORTIVE
This 6-hour course covers the science of resiliency and shares promising strategies to build culturally and contextually resilient individuals and communities. (You must complete Course 1 in order to take Course 2.)
Course 2 describes training on topics that teach the knowledge and skills required by individuals who have contact with those who may be adversely affected by trauma and toxic stress, whether or not the trauma is known. These topics include resilience-based practices with universal application, such as classrooms, offices, or other places the general public may congregate. Topics in this category focus on prevention and teach a variety of strategies to address the often-hidden effects of trauma and toxic stress by fostering resilience within the individual and the larger community.
