The Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) was developed by Lisa Schwarz, M.Ed., a licensed psychologist in Pittsburgh, PA.


To remember, re-process, and release traumatic material from the nervous system in order to provide the opportunity for re-connection to one’s true self, the meaning of the truth of one’s life, and to the ability to embody love in one’s actions.

The Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) modality is a nested modality with each internal resource used in a fashion that paves the way for the next level of resource to be developed and utilized. The final goal is processing the traumatic material from a place of complete neurobiological resourcing in various brain structures simultaneously. Eye positions are used to anchor the resources during processing.


This is the beauty of the model: it includes effective tools from many modalities and each resource within CRM can be used within any other type of healing work. It is a streamlined modality in which deep healing occurs quickly, gently, and it sticks. Work is done from the time of conception through the present and includes methods for working with generational trauma out of the realm of the client’s conscious knowledge. This is a heart-centered approach in which clients are guided to re-member who they really are and to learn to embody their true spiritual essence in their day to day lives.
