Comprehensive Resource Model


with Lisa Schwarz

31 - 1 - 2 - 3 and 4 June 2021

Workshop probably life but could be changed into a virtual workshop if need be


The Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) is a neurobiologically-based, emotion-focused treatment model which catalyzes the mind/body to safely access intolerable, affective trauma memories by utilizing layers of internal resources. These resources include attachment neurobiology, breathwork skills, somatic resources, connection to the natural world and relationship with self/intuition. The sequencing and combination of these resources, and the eye positions that anchor them, allow individuals to orient fully towards the most frightening material, accessing and clearing the origin of the split-second moments of survival threat and intolerable affects which are sourced in the midbrain and driving sub-cortical and cortical defense responses. These responses include pathological dissociation and lead to life-interfering symptoms, cognitions and addictions which subside once the neurobiological need for these responses is dismantled. Clearing trauma residues from the nervous system opens the way for positive affect, healing neuro-plasticity, and personal expansion, whether seen as spiritual or otherwise and is directly addressed in CRM. This 5 day training will introduce CRM clinical conceptualization, an overview of the neurobiological looping systems of trauma and healing in CRM, and detailed teaching of the resources used for safe trauma processing in practice. The methods used to convey this information are didactic lecture, demonstrations and practice dyads and Q and A.

Learning Objectifs

  • Learning 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

Didactic methods

  • Didactic teaching
  • Demonstrations
  • Experiential practicums.
