Trauma-Informed, Multicultural & Social Justice Infused Services
All services are trauma, multicultural and social justice informed. Services are trauma-informed which means cultivating a relationship built on trust and compassion based on not what is wrong with you but understanding your experience and what happened to you. Reasonable accommodations are highly likely to be permitted upon request. Furthermore, each service is integrated with education on the effects, prevention, and recovery of trauma. Only therapy services include the treatment of trauma. Multicultural and social justice informed means that biases (which we all have) that discriminates against a person's age (ageism), gender (sexism and heterosexism), race (racism), religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status (classism) or disability (ableism and disableism) may be discussed openly or privately in hopes to ensure fairness and equality, increase awareness, strengthen relationships and enhance services. Learn more about your biases by taking the Implicit Bias Test (IAT). Services are culturally sensitive (considerate and welcoming of the client's and other stakeholder's culture) and will work collaboratively with those from diverse backgrounds to ensure services are rendered with cultural competence. Social justice-informed also refers to tending to larger systemic social inequalities (issues related to power and privilege) that can manifest during the rendering of services, which may also be appropriately addressed in order to ensure fairness and equality, increase awareness, strengthen relationships and enhance services.
