Collaboration and Empowerment

Trauma involves a loss of power and control that makes us feel helpless. However, when we are prepared for and given real opportunities to make choices for ourselves and our care, we feel empowered and can promote our own wellness.

  1. Empowerment– We recognize the value of personal agency and understand how it supports recovery and overall wellness.
  2. Preparation– We proactively provide information and support the development of skills that are necessary for the effective empowerment of others.
  3. Opportunities– We regularly offer others opportunities to make decisions and choices that have a meaningful impact on their lives.

Everyday, it is about giving your all. I come in and give 110%. At the end of the day, you remind yourself, it is about what the kids and families need.
