Why Support?

This was my precise thought in 2017 when I was first introduced to this approach. It was shocking to me that I never learnt about this in school. Therefore, I started to read, go to seminars, and have supervision on the matter. I wanted to be adequately trained to support the youth and families I was working with. In turn, the adults I accompanied kept repeating to me: “Why has no one told me about this before?”, “It should be mandatory to know this before having children!” or “It helps me to understand my story and to see that my parents did the best they could with what they had at that time.”
