Transforming individuals and communities by addressing the effects of trauma and the root causes of conflicts At GuideSpring, transformation and restoration is facilitated through a number of tools and processes including: Journey Groups - Trained leaders guide and actively participate in safe and confidential small group meetings where deep listening and heartfelt responses support individuals as traumatic life experiences are shared and the journey back to wholeness begins. Shared stories become instruments of healing. Conflict Mediation - A group process facilitated by a trained leader or leaders where each person is truly heard and encouraged to hear others. When managed in such a healthy way, conflict can serve as a way for positive growth for individuals, couples and communities. Victim Offender Conferencing - As victims of trauma continue their journey toward wholeness, sharing of their story and damage, where it can be willingly heard by their offender, in a safe environment guided by specially trained leaders, can lead to further healing. Offenders, willing to deeply hear and recognize the damage they have caused and work through their own trauma and damage, can also begin a healing and restoration process. Post-Adoption Support Services - After adoptions are finalized, adoptive parents and adoptees themselves have very limited support services to help them deal with the unique problems they face. Our experienced staff works to provide a helping hand through focused group support sessions, access to trauma and conflict support services as well as other potential community resources.
