What sets us apart from other trauma treatment providers and trainers?
We recognize the importance of the right supports, in the right amount, at the right time, by the right person. We model for and coach adults while providing them with practical tools so that youth may be surrounded by nurturing, consistent, and predictable environments that will allow them to thrive.
Our programs are designed to provide practical and effective tools to adults that spend the most time with the youth. Up to 80% of trauma healing can be facilitated by a trained adult that has a trusting and nurturing relationship with the youth. Research has shown that the primary predictor of a youth’s success is the presence of at least one nurturing and supportive adult in his or her life. Our programs train and support youth, parents, and professionals to be the trusted, nurturing, and supportive adults in the lives of youth.
Our programs and trainings are informed by the most current science regarding trauma and attachment and are not a replacement for mental health treatment. Our programs and trainings are meant to be an additional path and resource to improve functioning and foster a life time of success.
