"Can you really help people like me?"
No one wakes up one day and decides that today is the day they are going to commit a criminal offence. The root cause of most criminal behaviours happens long before an offence occurs. It often begins with attachment problems, maladaptive schemas, childhood abuse, chronic stress, emotional pain, mental illness, or other unidentified and untreated organic factors, etc. These negative behaviour patterns, or what we call "high-risk behaviours", become amplified over time if individuals do not have the strategies to manage them. But there is hope and change is possible because of neuroplasticity; the brain can change and therefore behaviours can change.
PWR Health Consultants, Inc. can help facilitate change by identifying individual strengths and deficits, and by providing the tools and teaching the skills to manage behaviors. Patients learn how to identify their moods and the thoughts that are the precursors to offending behaviour. They also learn how to practice self-care, build resilience, identify triggers, and minimize the risk of re-offending.
The answer is YES, we can help.
