COMMUNITY RESILIENCE TRAINING OFFERED AT ALLEGANY COLLEGE OF MARYLAND
CUMBERLAND, Md. (Nov. 12, 2019) –Allegany College of Maryland in partnership with the Center for Mind-Body Medicine will offer free mind-body skills group training for 150 individuals through its Tackling the Opioid Crisis: A Community Resilience Approach project. A registration application is available online. Interested individuals are encouraged to apply by Nov. 24.
Through eight training sessions held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 7 to 10 and Mar. 12 to 15 at ACM’s Cumberland campus, attendees will learn to use the Center for Mind-Body Medicine model of self-care and group support to help community members address the root causes of addiction: trauma, despair, isolation, mental health challenges, and chronic illness and pain.
The “train the trainer” model developed for ACM’s Tackling the Opioid Crisis: A Community Resilience Approach project is designed to be self-sustaining. Participants are required to attend all eight days of trainings, and commit to facilitating at least one eight-week Mind-Body Skills group and two one-hour information workshops. Professional CEU applications are pending.
Applications will be reviewed and accepted based on priority areas and grant-identified
criteria. Applicants will be notified no later than Jan. 2 of their application status.
If seats are available after Nov. 24, a second round of applications will be offered.
The Tackling the Opioid Crisis: A Community Resilience Approach project is supported
