UCAN's Clinical Philosophy unites and guides all of our programs under a cohesive approach for treating our clients who are challenged by their histories of trauma.
Provide a cohesive approach for serving our clients. Empower clients by building upon their strengths, encourage a sense of independence, and instill hope for the future.
Our common beliefs
At UCAN, we believe:
- and accept our clients' pain as reality
- in the resiliency and strength of our clients
- that the foundation for healing is through relationship building
- that in an attempt to heal, our clients often re-enact their traumas, attempting to change the outcomes
At UCAN, we understand:
- and support the difficult work of our employees
- the importance of a systemic approach
- treatment is not a linear process
Recognizing that experiences of trauma underlie the behavioral and life challenges of many of our clients, UCAN trains all staff members in the four elements of our Clinical Philosophy:
- Human Development
- Trust and Attachment
- Trauma, Violence and Loss
- Systems Theory in Clinical Practice
