Therapeutic Values

We believe in:

  • The client right to self-determination and personal goal setting, as guided by the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP).
  • A therapist cannot and should not pre-determine what changes are not socially acceptable for a client because of political and social beliefs or causes.
  • The right of therapists and of professional organizations to not impose personal religious, ethical or political biases upon their clients.
  • The democratic ideal of freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of religion, for therapists, clients, and organizational leadership.
  • The pursuit of professional excellence in a posture of integrity, love and compassion towards our clients.
  • A professional atmosphere where each person has the right to speak freely, debate robustly, and judge people individually not collectively.
  • Personal virtue and responsibility as a necessary part of any successful organization or individual endeavor.
