Family Centered- Trauma Informed Care
Lifeworks clinical Philosophy is founded on The Neurosequential Model Of Therapeutics (NMT); attachment theory, and trauma and neuroscience research. Lifeworks also follows the organizational philosophy of Trauma Informed care.
Trauma informed means that providers and the organization in which they are employed realize the widespread impact of trauma and:
Understand potential paths for recovery
Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff and others with whom the organization or providers interact
Responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies procedures and practice and seek to actively resist re-traumatization
Six core principles of Trauma-informed approach are: Safety; Trustworthiness and Transparency; Collaboration and Mutuality; Empowerment, Voice, and Choice; Cultural, Historical, and Gender issues. Lifeworks embraces the similarities and differences that create the beauty of life and connect all humankind.
