Transitional Character

Watch the TED Talk on this topic


"A transitional character is one who, in a single generation, changes the entire course of a lineage.  The changes might be for good or ill, but the most noteworthy examples are those individuals who grow up in an abusive, emotionally dstructive environment and who somehow find a way to metabolize the poison and refuse to pass it on to their children.  They break the mold.  They refute the onservation that abused children become abusive parents, that the children of alcoholics become alcoholic adults, that 'the sins of the fathers are visited upon the heads of the children to the third & fourth generation.'  Their contribution to humanity is to filter the destructiveness out of their own lineage so that the generations downstream will have a supportive foundation upon which to build productive lives."    -Carlfred Broderick (1992). Marriage and the Family

Holistic Healing

"Holistic health is an approach to wellness that simultaneously addresses the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual components of health. As a field of practice, holistic medicine draws from many disciplines, religions, and cultures to heal people, communities, and even the environment."

Legacy Work & Legacy Bonding

Legacy is about prolonging one’s influence across space and time. It is about creating something that will reflect who you are and what you lived for. It is a way to communicate what you have experienced and felt but also what you hope for others.

- Andrea Warnick

**I personally view legacy work in regards to trauma as the work we do to heal ourselves for the purpose of not passing on our trauma to the future generations of our family. Legacy bonding is the work we do with our children to encourage & increase their level of resilience, therefore lowering their susceptibility to trauma. It's essentially the cure for intergenerational abuse.

Wrap-Around Programming

Wraparound is an intensive, individualized care management program designed for youth with serious or complex emotional and/or behavioural problems. It is designed to prevent fragmentation and ‘gaps’ in the services often encountered by youth and their families.

The Wraparound approach seeks to provide more extensive and proactive contact between the youth, his or her family, and other involved parties (e.g., court counsellor, social worker, etc.). Wraparound is focused on providing a continuum of individualized services and support networks with individualized case management coordination.

Transgenerational & Intergenerational Abuse/Trauma

A cycle of trauma or abuse that passes through a family line; through behavior, environment, biological influence or social influences.

Home Prevention

Initially, the term "family preservation" was applied to Homebuilders, a foster care placement prevention program developed in 1974 in Tacoma, Washington. The Homebuilders model called for short-term, time-limited services provided to the entire family in their home. Services were provided to families with children who were at risk of an imminent placement into foster care.
