Getting Back in the Zone
From volunteers, to grant writers, to leadership, to human resource and everyone in between, those in the non-profit world face unique challenges when it comes to combatting managing symptoms of burnout. The Community Resiliency Model (CRM®) is designed to provide biologically based skills and knowledge to help individuals feel in control when things seem out of control. Through a combination of psychoeducation and experiential activities, participants learn simple and effective ways to help alleviate the impact of stress on mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
CRM® wellness skills are simple, effective, and based on neuroscience. The goals are to both identify practical actions individuals can engage in daily to bring the nervous system to greater balance while also increasing resiliency to stress and burnout. By deepening the understanding of the nervous system’s response when a threat is perceived, individuals increase empathy towards self and others. Responses to stress are recognized as biological in nature and not mental weakness. When skills are practiced, individuals can feel confident they are bringing their best selves to every situation, increasing the opportunities for creativity, relationship building, and problem solving.
By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to discuss the connection of CRM® wellness skills and current neuroscience. Identify the effects from the autonomic nervous system when under stress. Describe the importance of the amygdala in our survival response. Be able to utilize the basic 3 CRM® skills and Help Now!. The information and skills will benefit all working in the non-profit field.
