Linda Grabbe, PhD, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Her clinical expertise is in primary care and mental health care for homeless or incarcerated women and youth, providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills training and Community Resilience Model (CRM) training in group settings.
Her interests include the neurobiology of trauma and resilience, social justice, and social determinants of mental health. Dr. Grabbe is a healthcare provider with Community Advanced Practice Nurses, a small non-profit organization that operates a network of clinics in Atlanta homeless shelters for women, children, and youth.
Dr. Grabbe’s research has been with women and youth at risk for mental illness, homelessness, and substance abuse. Her current research includes measuring the impact of Community Resiliency Model training on wellbeing and the emotional state of women in substance abuse treatment, as well as on wellbeing, resiliency, burnout, and effects of secondary traumatic stress in clinical pharmacists, nurses, first responders, medical and nursing staff, and nursing students.
In this conversation we discuss the origins of Community Resiliency Model (CRM) and the the power it has to quickly reduce impact of stress and trauma and equip an individual to deal with future stress factors expanding their resiliency zone. We talk about key components of CRM, such as tracking, grounding and resourcing. Tune in to learn more!
