Our approach utilizes three components. Mindfulness regarding the Self, mindfulness regarding one’s Family, and mindfulness regarding one’s connection to our People and Land. Research shows us that mindfulness is linked to the development of inner resources and promote various good character traits such as greater emotional stability, lowered impulsiveness, and ability to tolerate difficult experiences. At UCanachieve, we focus on three pillars, the self, the family, and the concept of people, and land.
The Self is the first of three pillars. Confused teenagers and young adults are first and foremost perplexed about their basic identity. To approach the future and tackle challenges, everyone needs a basic reality-based optimism about their own capabilities.
The Family is the second of three pillars. No man is an island and no teen grows up in a vacuum. The second component of our approach is to develop healthier communication between parents and their challenging teenager or young adult. Building skills for communication and expectations helps build the family web that supports teens and young adults.
People and land
People and Land is the third of the three pillars. As a young man begins to develop mindfulness towards himself and his family, it is time to have him reflect upon his or her relationship with peers and the wider social universe. Residential treatment in Israel allows us to pursue this in a uniquely powerful way.
