According to Miller-Karas, “CRM is not only trauma informed, but is a resiliency informed and focused model.”
CRM is based on six skills, which include:
- Shift and stay
- Help now!
For many children and adults, staying calm when faced with a challenge can be difficult. CRM teaches people to regulate their emotions, even in stressful situations.
“The skills help us calm ourselves and regulate our nervous system, which leads to us having clearer thinking and being able to do the tasks of daily living in a way that contributes to our self, our family, and our community,” Miller-Karas states.
