The Resources for Resilience (RFR) curriculum offers a set of practical strategies that support our human capacity to return to a place of balance and well being when faced with acute or relational trauma. This simple, easy to understand application of neuroscience gives participants an “owner’s manual” to the body’s threat and safety management system.
Through psycho-education about how the brain and the autonomic nervous system operate in response to threat, participants then learn seven specific well-being strategies which help them stabilize internally.
Through demonstrations and many opportunities for group practice throughout the training, participants learn how to apply the tools to regulate the nervous system, restore self-compassion from shame and re-connect to others.
When these tools are practiced regularly, they can provide relief for the stress that priests, lay people and others in the community face working on the front lines with traumatized people, and can be passed on to the individuals and groups they serve.
