There is hope.
Neuroplasticity makes it possible to change.
Learning that your loved one is in trouble with the law can be devastating. Being there to witness your partner or family member being arrested by the police can be a traumatic experience. It's difficult to know what to do, understand what comes next, or how to explain it to family and friends - let alone knowing how to support your loved one who is in trouble. That's where PWR comes in. We understand what it's like. We know what comes next. We can support and facilitate the recovery process. What PWR offers is the one thing families need in the midst of crisis: HOPE. We know that the brain can change, which means that people can change. Appropriate treatment can mean a better future is possible. While your loved one is working hard on the path to recovery your support will be the key to their long term success. Call us today!
We know that therapy is a significant commitment. Below are some tips to help the process flow a little more smoothly and work a little better so you can see change a little faster:
DO IT TOGETHER
PWR's program is rigorous and demanding. Your loved one will be given a Binder with worksheets and assignments, as well as several required books for reading. We recommend doing this work together for two reasons:
- So that the patient has a built-in support and accountability network to help strengthen new learning (i.e. those new neural networks).
- So that you can participate in this journey.
Over the years, we've seen so many lives change – we know you will want to have a front row seat and be part of the change.
Ask questions. stay curious.
Your partner or loved one will be undergoing probably the most intensive introspective process of their life. They will be learning the "how" and "why" of their behaviours, gaining new insights, and learning to integrate new skills and concepts into their lives and relationships. They will...change. (Remember: Neuroplasticity!) You can support this process by staying compassionately curious. It means being there and being interested in their progress. It means broaching difficult subjects gently and giving them the space to discuss new or difficult concepts. And, in the process, you're going to learn too! We always encourage couples and families to discuss new learning and engage in the process together.
don't give up.
As in all aspects of life, there will be days when things go smoothly and there will be tough times. We understand and we know the process isn't easy. That's why we always say:
- Be gentle with yourself and with each other.
- You are on the same team.
- Learn to have fun together.
- Focus on the future you want.
- Use a Park List.
You're going to make it!
