Description:

CRM® Basic Training will provide you with the powerful interventions you need to work with your most fragile populations immediately and effectively.

This 4 day training is the pre-requisite for all other CRM® trainings.  There are four components to this training:

  1. CRM® Case conceptualization and specific neurobiological interventions that create robust brain and body-based safety as a framework for trauma processing in sessions and personal agency between sessions
  2. The art of applying the concepts and skills in the most effective and attuned way particularly for Complex PTSD although the model is effective for most psychiatric diagnoses
  3. Teaching and inspiring therapists to expand their sophistication, confidence and competence in working with the nuances and intuition in healing others rather than simply applying protocols
  4. Providing the opportunity for therapists to apply CRM® processing for their own deep healing which enhances their ability to attune to the more complex needs of their clients

The learning process includes didactic teaching, demonstrations and experiential practicums.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the Elements of Phenomenology of CRM®
  • Describe the Case Conceptualization of CRM®
  • Identify the Neurobiology of Trauma

  • Utilize a variety of secondary resources for embodying positive neurophysiological changes (including but not limited to bilateral music, toning and sound, and movement).
  • Utilize Ego State interventions that facilitate internal communication, cooperation, and co-consciousness
  • Practice neurobiological resourcing skills that promote trauma processing that do not re-traumatize the client
  • Apply self-care for therapists who work with severe and complex trauma
  • Summarize mapping of dissociative systems to increase co-consciousness, internal cooperation and internal communication
