Resilience Enhancement and Leadership Model (REALM)

Join us for a Live Webinar event on June 16, 2023 from 12-3:20pm EDT
3 CE hours available for behavioral health clinicians

Enhancing resilience is important for individuals, families, and communities to be able to withstand challenges and bounce back from adversity. Resilience Enhancement and Leadership Model (REALM) offers a set of skills essential for building capacity for resilience in three main areas: individual, interpersonal, and organizational. REALM  provides participants with tools and techniques for self-regulation, needs satisfaction, compassionate communication, trust building, and value-based leadership. This course draws on empirically supported programs, to include Community Resiliency Model (Trauma Resource Institute), Stress Management and Resilience Training (Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine), and Mindful Self-Compassion (Center for Mindful Self-Compassion) as well as research-based practices from the Gottman Institute and Insight Coaching. Standing on the five pillars of resilience –Self Awareness, Mindfulness, Self-Care, Positive Relationships, and Purpose – REALM presents a great opportunity for clinicians, educators, first responders, and community leaders to strengthen their own resilience skills and teach them to those they serve.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the stress response and the relaxation response
  • Assess the role of safety, connection, and satisfaction in interpersonal wellness
  • Discuss factors contributing to building trust and living in accord to your core values
