Our Vision

To create trauma-informed and resiliency-informed individuals and communities internationally, respecting the wisdom of cultural diversity.

 

Our Mission

  • To take people from despair to hope through simple skills-based interventions based on cutting edge research about the brain.

  • To expand access to wellness skills to enhance resiliency for our active duty service members, veterans and their families.

  • To expand access to biologically based treatments by training frontline service providers, community leaders and clinicians in order to build local capacity in diverse communities nationally and internationally.

 

 

Our Beliefs

As a trauma educational organization we are committed to the following values:

  • Every individual, child and adult, has a natural-born resiliency.

  • When a traumatic event has resulted in symptoms, individuals are entitled to treatment that is gentle, effective and culturally-sensitive.

  • Education and intervention about the common reactions to traumatic experiences must be available to diverse populations and cultures.

  • Treatment of individuals suffering from traumatic stress reactions must be accessible and affordable to all members of society.

  • Enhancing the capacity of communities to provide for their own members rather than relying on outside ‘experts” creates resiliency –informed communities.
