Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Models and Resiliency

TREC integrates aspects of SEL models to cultivate crucial social and emotional skills in individuals, encompassing self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. These skills, vital not only for children but also for adults, are instrumental in fostering resilience, navigating adversity, and nurturing positive relationships.

SEL frameworks emphasize the significance of fostering emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills, and self-awareness alongside academic development.

Trauma-Informed Models

TREC incorporates trauma-informed principles to establish safe, supportive, and empowering environments for individuals who have experienced trauma. We prioritize understanding the impact of trauma, fostering trusted relationships, and promoting healing and resilience. Additionally, TREC creates cultures of trust and belonging among staff, emphasizing the significance of both self-care and collective care.

Trauma-informed models provide frameworks for sensitively and supportively understanding and responding to individuals affected by trauma, acknowledging its profound and enduring effects on their physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. These models strive to create safe, empowering environments conducive to healing.

Restorative Justice Models

TREC integrates restorative justice principles to address harm, conflict, and wrongdoing within educational and community contexts, prioritizing relationship repair, harm healing, accountability, and dialogue among all stakeholders. In our Trauma-Resilient Professional certification, participants acquire skills and practices for implementing talking circles and other restorative justice methods.

Restorative Justice models advocate for a shift from punitive measures to restoration, emphasizing dialogue, empathy, and community engagement.

Socio-Ecological Models

TREC utilizes socio-ecological frameworks, supported by collective impact initiatives, to understand the multifaceted determinants of health encompassing social, economic, and environmental factors. These frameworks recognize that health outcomes are shaped by various levels of influence, from individual behaviors to community contexts, organizational structures, and public policies.

Socio-ecological models provide a lens to comprehend the complex interplay between individuals and their broader social, cultural, economic, and environmental contexts, acknowledging the diverse impacts on human behavior and health outcomes.

Public Health Models

TREC seamlessly incorporates public health approaches to combat population-level health disparities and advance health equity. We educate on and tackle social determinants of health, advocating for policy reforms, and actively participates in community-based interventions to enhance health outcomes across all demographics.
