We are excited to announce that Dr. Laurie Leitch will lead a two-day Social Resilience Model (SRM) training at John Jay College this August. This training is intended for Pinkerton Graduate Fellows, College Initiative Mentors, and PRI staff who’ve not yet participated in the training.
SRM teaches the basics of neuroscience so that people can understand what happens to the nervous system when experiencing stress or trauma, and builds capacity for resilience. SRM also teaches practical skills for noticing and managing the disruption of the nervous system and equips people to be able to return the resilient zone, thereby reducing reactivity in stressful situations. It builds on the importance of trauma-informed care, and prepares people to coach others in stress management. Violence Interrupters from the Detroit CeaseFire program, who have been trained by Dr. Leitch and are using SRM in their violence reduction work, will lead SRM practice sessions during the training.
This training is invite-only, and space is extremely limited. The training is free, but a $100 fee applies if you RSVP and do not attend. To avoid this fee, you must let us know one week in advance if you can no longer attend. Please be sure you can attend both training days if you RSVP. We will keep a waiting list and use it to fill cancellations.
Dates: August 8 and 9
Time: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. (both days)
