Research and clinical experience confirm that the number one problem we face is not addiction, domestic violence, or child abuse.  Instead:

The number one problem societies face worldwide is the result of untreated or unresolved trauma and neglect.

Trauma and neglect most often begins in our homes.

Once trauma and neglect are treated, we may no longer have the aftermath of domestic violence, child abuse, addiction and the multi-level problems we experience personally, with our health, in our relationships, and at our workplace.
