9:30am – 12:00pm

at Vista Del Mar Child & Family


When we experience trauma we are often left in a state of panic, depression, hopelessness, anxiety, or fear. These are natural responses to considerably stressful events that fragment our worldview and security. It can leave us feeling helpless and disempowered.

The Trauma Resiliency Model (“TRM”) is a protocol that utilizes natural body responses to help people heal from traumatic events and daily stressors. Like other somatic therapy methods, TRM recognizes that our bodies, nervous systems and minds are connected and offers specific skills to reduce symptoms of traumatic stress in the nervous system.

Lisa Cash, LMFT, works with individuals, couples, and adolescents. She is trained to integrate multimodal trauma treatments. She employs various treatments such as the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Havening to restore you to wholeness in body, mind and spirit.

Alicia Murray, LMFT has a trauma-informed practice working with individuals, couples and children. She is trained in CRM, TRM, EMDR and Havening.


Certificates of Attendance are available for this event and are free for ACDS members and $5 for non-members.  This fee is payable via PAYPAL. (Complete instructions for payment via PAYPAL are below.)
