We know that creating a safe environment is the best way to ensure the growth and transformations we seek. We understand that creating space for open dialogue requires a certain degree of vulnerability, so we are deeply affirming of both teens and parents. The young people and families who come to us are assumed to be creative, resourceful people.
If there are behavioural concerns that are identified with any of our clients we tend to see those concerns as symptomatic of something else. Our job is to identify and sort out what’s going on “underneath” the concern so that there is opportunity for both the behaviour and what’s influencing it to resolve.
