Resource NI was established to work alongside individuals and organisations to mine the resources they already have, assess what resources they need to add and to plan with them to bring hope to life. Resource NI works from the principle that the past does not define the future. Past experiences often shape the expectations individuals and organisation live by in the present. When we focus together on learning from those experiences about our behaviours new opportunities present themselves to create and co-create futures not defined by the past. In terms of particularly traumatic experiences the commitment is to skilling individuals and organisations for post-traumatic growth. Resource NI works alongside individuals and organisations that:
- have or are experiencing trauma, secondary trauma or significant stress
- are engaged in processes of change
- are living in or with conflict
- are seeking to build resilience and find balance in creative, thinking spaces that allow all to contribute their best to the task in hand
Using resiliency skills as taught through the CRM© Skills Model (Trauma Resource Institute, California) while creating thinking spaces, Resource NI works with you to establish and develop your resources by increasing your best thinking. This approach gives individuals a greater sense of their value and skills supported by healthy relationships with others who may be friends, colleagues, family or community members.
Resource NI’s values inform both the approach to and manner in which work is carried out. Resource NI will work with you to understand your needs and design processes that are agile and responsive, focussing on you as the key resource for the future.
Each individual can make a positive contribution
Each individual can develop skills to become a balanced, thinking resource to the world
Groups of individuals can create thinking spaces and find their way to new, creative approaches and ideas
Individuals, groups and organisations need not remain hostage to traumatic or stressful experiences
