We are all encircled by the systems around us. This theory is quite evident for a developing child or teen: There’s the family system, the foster and adoptive system, the school system, the legal systems, the medical system… the list goes on.
These systems can shape an individual, by inadvertently telling them who they are, what they’re worth, and how they should be treated by the world. By creating atmospheres that project love and acceptance through improving the systems around children and teens, caregivers can more effectively build the trust that leads to healing.
When all caregivers – including parents (adoptive, foster & biological) – are trained and involved in the healing process, it can make a monumental difference for a child. That’s why we provide support for both professionals and non-professionals– to enable real healing.
If a flower isn’t growing, you don’t try to change the flower. Instead, you give it light, water, soil– You change the environment in which it grows.
