Educate Accommodate Facilitate Evaluate Advocate Collaborate
Educate our clients, their caretakers and/or families about chronic pain and consequential psychiatric disorders. One of our crucial goals is to support, guide and arm our clients with the necessary tools needed to strike a balance in what Zig Ziglar identified as the 7 core areas of life - these are physical health, personal + social, work + career, family, spiritual, financial and mind/intellect, or more broadly, the mental, emotional, physical and, spiritual body systems.
In addition to educating our clients and their families, our team has fostered a continuing education mindset by staying current through professional webinars, conferences, and training.
Accommodate our clients by offering care that respects their needs, values, and beliefs. We believe that by individualizing each client's wellness program and responding to social preferences, geographic limitations, socioeconomic background, and lifestyle complications, a higher probability of long-term success can be achieved. Furthermore, current research supports this belief.
Facilitate an environment that fosters learning, trust, and growth in order for our client's to master self-management tools for pain management, emotional regulation, effective communication both with self and others, thinking patterns and paradigm shifts.
Evaluate client's at the beginning, mid-way, and end of our wellness programs with the latest validated pain assessments in order to measure efficacy, progress, and success of our treatment plans.
Advocate for subjects that matter most to chronic pain sufferers, their caregivers, and families via education, legislation and, awareness.
Collaborate with leading healthcare professionals, research institutions and professional organizations by sharing our outcomes and data. Additionally, we partner with our client's treating physicians so care is unified, concurrent and synchronous.
