Stepping Stones: Relationships, Resiliency, and Reflective Practice
Bernstein, Victor J.; Lewis, Marva L.; Daniher, Kathy; Murphy, Keanna
ZERO TO THREE, v34 n2 p64-71 Nov 2013
This article describes the story of resilience of a mother who achieved multiple successes despite challenges that included child abuse and homelessness. The factors that contributed to her success included consistent support from a team of staff of the family Assertive Community Treatment (FACT) Program. This agency serves mothers from 18 to 25 years old who have a mental health or substance use disorder (or both), and a history of chronic, often multigenerational homelessness. One of the team members recounts the journey they experienced together in the formal helping relationship. The authors discuss the important role of reflective supervision and how a cadre of nurturing and committed relationships created the context for resilience and growth in the face of toxic stress.
