We strive and work towards:

Our Mission: is to dramatically shift the cultural paradigm in order to improve societies response to individuals who have experienced trauma, victimization and other complex experiences.

We Envision: A Neurobased and Trauma Informed Response to all incidents of high stress and trauma.  A response that empowers individuals and families while embracing compassion, respect and dignity of all people.

We believe that, in the past 50 years, the response to individuals
who have experienced trauma and/or victimization has
greatly improved and we have made great progress.

However, we also believe that the prevalence rates of victimization has not changed in those 50 years. While we are serving the wounded hearts and injured brains better, we are not preventing victimization. This needs to change.

We believe that by providing quality, cutting edge education, training
and consultation to multidisciplinary professionals who work with people who have experienced trauma, sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse, human trafficking and other forms of complicated and often painful experiences, we can impact and inspire change.

We believe that victim, witness and suspect innovative interview methods, trauma response strategies and protocols, vicarious trauma mitigation and self-care initiatives, state of the art human dimension forensic techniques, advanced  criminal investigation methods and other promising shifts can inspire change.

We believe that there is enough trauma and violence to go around.  We know that there are other companies, agencies, organizations and consultants who are doing similar work.  Our perspective is that it is going to take an army to the shift the tide, so our hope is that many join this movement.  We are open to collaboration, coordination and we function in transparency.
