What does it mean? It means we will no longer be a group home organization, but a treatment facility. It means we will not have staff anymore, we will have child care counselors. It means we will not only be dealing with behaviors, but with the trauma the children have been through that created the behaviors they choose.
Using the fact that we all genetically have 5 Needs, and that there are 4 parts to the behaviors we choose to meet those needs, we will teach the children to evaluate their choices, both to see if they get them what they want, and if those behaviors help them build relationships with the people they most want in their lives.
If you have been following my blog, then you have a good idea how we plan to help the children find meaning in their life and make choices that will make their daily choices more effective.
