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