Course Descriptions
Course 1 – introduces CRI’s capacity-building framework for building resilience, KISS.  Knowledge, Insight, Strategies, and Structure describes our community’s learning and movement from theory to practice and how to implement evidence-based strategies into action. The training includes three groups of topics:  the NEAR sciences, a cluster of emerging scientific findings in the fields of Neuroscience, Epigenetics, ACE Study, and Resilience; Brain States, the critical transition from Knowledge to Insight; and ROLES, CRI’s signature training on Recognize, Observe, Label, Elect and Solve, core strategies that take us below the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The key objective is to provide information about identifying and responding to trauma with evidence-based resilience strategies when working with an audience whose trauma history may not be known.

Course 2 **Please note Course 1 is a prerequisite for 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.

Course 3 – Trauma-Practitioners Neuroscience provides a new lens through which to view challenging and disruptive behavior. This information helps us to respond more compassionately and effectively to individuals that use adaptive strategies to cope with their experiences.  Being true to CRI’s K.I.S.S. framework, we believe that dealing more effectively with these individuals requires, first and foremost, the knowledge and insight into why they behave as they do. Once that it is achieved, then we employ strategies based on that knowledge and insight. This course is about those compassionate and effective intervention strategies for challenging behavior.  During this two-day training for trauma practitioners, participants will learn the foundation of the trauma-informed approach to understanding and helping individuals with behavioral challenges.  Challenging behavior has traditionally been thought of as willful and goal-oriented which has led to approaches that focus on motivating better behavior using reward and punishment programs. If you’ve tried these strategies and they haven’t worked, this course is for you! Research over the past 30 years demonstrates that a lack of crucial thinking skills results in challenging and disruptive behavior. CRI’s Course 3 focuses on helping to teach the skills these individuals lack while resolving the problems that tend to precipitate challenging behavior.

Participants will:

Learn why traditional behavior management doesn’t work with many challenging behaviors.
Learn that challenging behavior occurs when certain demands and expectations exceed an individual’s capacity to respond adaptively.

  • Learn what the research says about the link between challenging behavior and underdeveloped executive function skills.
  • Learn that how challenging behavior is viewed will guide the intervention
  • Learn that interventions need to involve identifying the underdeveloped skill and solving the problems that trigger challenging behavior.
  • Learn strategies to develop skills linked to challenging behavior.
