Targeted Case Management
Reversing the impact of poverty and systemic and racialized trauma involves identifying needs, and developing a plan to support goals identified in partnership with the individual or family.
It also means facilitating contact with other providers; advocating for access to services and empowering individuals to advocate for themselves.
The balance between the psychological (mental and emotional), physical and cognitive (knowledge and understanding) functioning of the body creates holistic (whole body) wellness. This balance can become disrupted in response to micro thoughts or experiencing trauma (triggers).
Research indicates a decrease in symptoms of anxiety and depression occurs through programming structured around understanding the physical body, and safety and stability found in yoga, physical play, and use of the body in storytelling and movement.
Art therapy focused on using the power of stories to heal. Safety and connection create space for the action of processing thoughts, feelings and observations. The written word validates and gives voice to experiences previously silenced to create understanding.
Trauma Focused Therapy
Reducing negative emotional and behavioral responses are necessary to correct maladaptive (flawed) beliefs related to racialized trauma experiences. Trauma therapy provides support and skills to help individuals cope effectively with their own emotional distress and respond others who have been traumatized.
