Join us for two virtual community-wide resilience training sessions hosted by HCAN, the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health, and the Community Resilience Initiative.
Session 1 - September 16| 9AM-10AM
CRI’s KISS Framework
A framework is described as a basic structure underlying a system, concept, or text. CRI’s KISS Framework is the basic structure that underlies all of CRI’s community building concepts. KISS is a powerful acronym that represents the blueprint for mitigating risks in the context of community. This framework is all about building capacity. Participants in this session will learn the scaffolding concepts developed from the merger of science and practice.

Session 2 - September 23| 9AM-10AM
A Community-wide Approach to Resilience Building
We already know to be effective and sustainable a trauma-informed movement must be community-wide. Our research tells us individual resilience is certainly important, but without a community focus on resilience across all domains in which we live our lives, individual resilience may be challenged. This session focuses on the overarching shift to trauma-informed care by addressing resilience at the broader community level.
