Resilience: An Essential Ingredient in Building Health and Well-being

HOSTED BY: The Trauma Informed Health Care Education and Research (TIHCER)

This brief session will describe:
1. an exciting approach to building resilience: The Social Resilience Model (SRM), also called Brain Gain Program (BGP), which is a neuroscience-based approach focused on the neurobiological basis of stress, distress, and trauma and, most importantly, resilience;
2. the way SRM/BGP works with the reflexive, defensive ways the body responds to threat and fear;
3. the practical, easily learned SRM/BGP skills that do not require an insight orientation, or even high levels of literacy, as do many cognitively-based approaches;
4. the relevance and use of the model with populations in which there are often high states of dysregulation and reactivity.
The SRM/BGP Skills Card will be used throughout the discussion to highlight the model as well as to illustrate how the skills-based approach can be used in marginalized communities.
