Staff and partner organizations comprehend the widespread impact trauma has on children and families and work to address the signs and symptoms while fostering individual and collective resilience.
In the midst of so much difficulty, it’s important to focus on the positive and help our participants identify their strengths, gifts, and talents. This self-awareness tool is used in addressing changes in behavior, attitudes, and beliefs.
We prioritize helping our participants to be the decision makers of their lives. Our staff walks with participants through each step of their experiences of learning, healing, and gaining more skills. They honor each participant’s story and respect their feelings and limits.
If needed and desired, PV offers participants access to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Brain Spotting, Mindfulness, and HeartMath.
Ensuring mental health access for children and their families was one of the first additional services PV began financing. Our goal is to expand parents and caregivers’ understandings of how to raise a family, discover new ways supporting their child’s social-emotional development, and learn more about their child’s behaviors and their own.
