Webinar — Community Resiliency Model: An Innovative Approach to Addressing Burnout

Mar 12, 2020

The 2nd session of the IL ACEs Response Collaborative’s series on burnout discussed the Community Resiliency Model, developed by Elaine Miller-Karas of the Trauma Resource Institute, and explained how it prevents burnout in the workplace.

The Community Resiliency Model creates “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored using this skills-based approach. The Community Resilience Model is based on current neuroscience and teaches six biologically-based wellness skills to return the mind and body back into a more balanced state.

The model can also be employed by organizations to address the traumatic experiences staff face and to prevent burnout in a variety of settings, and was recently applied and measured with hospital based nurses by Dr. Linda Grabbe of Emory University.

Ms. Miller-Karas and Dr. Grabbe highlighted the development of the Community Resilience Model, how it was utilized with nurses and shared their exciting results from a recently published article. They also discussed ways the model can be utilized in a variety of organizational settings.
