Effectiveness of Using CRM with Children, Families, and Schools to Increase Resiliency and Overall Well Being in Low-resourced Areas

This research seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of implementing a Community Resiliency Model (CRM) to children, their parents, and teachers who live in high-risk, low-resourced areas and have experienced significant manmade and environmental traumas. Projected outcomes include lower distress, increased attention and concentration, greater resiliency, improved family cohesion, decreased corporal punishment, and improved communication. Data collection is currently ongoing in Sierra Leone.
