Our vision.

To equip key people to educate or intervene where emotional or spiritual injury confounds and depletes personal and community resources.

 

Our mission.

To provide people – wounded in mind and spirit – the method and means to reclaim personal integrity from which to heal, grow, and thrive.

We envision healthier communities as individuals who have been impacted by trauma are restored to psychological health and well-being.

 

Our values.


As an organization seeking to promote the dignity of the human spirit, it is our desire to reflect that value in our personal and corporate interactions. 

Integrity street sign.jpgWe also challenge ourselves to “practice what we teach” by living lives that set an example how one lives from Core Self.  Our hope is that any who know us personally or who meet us in any other context will say that we are people of integrity.

The search for significance and meaning is part of one’s Core Identity. Our desire is that in our search we remain mindful of the welfare of others and not seek to self-promote at the expense of others. 


Our philosophy.

Stressful and traumatic events result in injury, not illness 

Current approaches for treatment of trauma survivors, based on a medical model of mental illness, assume the victim to be sick and in need of medication and right thinking. Other than alleviating mild depression or anxiety, medication has proven ineffective in resolution of trauma symptoms. The Core Integrity Model (CIM) suggests a paradigm shift in mental health care with the introduction of the injury model and a return to the application of the Law of Parsimony. We seek to approach mental health from the premise that “injury” must be ruled out first before assigning an “illness” diagnosis. By broadening mental health to address both injury and illness, societal attitudes will change dramatically as individuals more readily and easily relate to those who are mentally “injured” or “wounded.”

Recent neurocognitive research in the study of consciousness supports the premise of the CIM that there is a resilient Core self that endures beyond the worst of injuries and that there can be restoration of mental control to the person. The CIM provides very specific tools that are trans-cultural because they use the natural neurocognitive processes of the brain. Utilization of these techniques allows the trauma survivor to regain executive control – lost in the traumatic event – of his or her own mind.
