The fall has arrived, and with it a host of growth and change for Three Trees. Read on to learn more…
We recently traveled down to the annual South Carolina Criminal Justice Training Conference. While there, we presented on Psychopaths and how to most effectively work with them. About 4-5% of Americans (and about 20-25% of individuals who are incarcerated) are thought to meet the clinical criteria for Psychopathy. Based on these high numbers it is incredibly important that we learn more about how to safely work with this population despite the belief that there is no known cure. We really enjoyed teaching on this topic and always try to emphasize that Psychopaths have the ability (through what they lack) to teach us about what it truly means to be human and to care for our families and our communities.
We are excited to be heading out to Alabama in the new year. We will be training federal law enforcement in utilizing Stop Drop Think interventions as part of their tool box in reducing offender recidivism and increasing community safety. Head to our certification website page by clicking the picture above for more information about getting your program or agency certified in this evidence based, award winning model.
Watch our first in a series of ridiculously low budget videos that follow the fictional character of Tina as she manages to make changes in her life and overcome the obstacles in front of her. In this video Tina tackles impulse control.
Meet our newest employee… Zumi! Apparently her name means “dances with joy” which seems incredibly apt. Zumi, once appropriately trained, will be tasked with sitting with people at Hospice and our clients here at Three Trees to help provide comfort and a sense of grounding in ways only our canine friends can!
The Good Egg by Jory John and Pete Oswald is a great reminder of the need for self care. We like the book so much that we turned one of our Halloween pumpkins into the good egg main character as he starts to crack up.
