Is there anyone who should not participate in this system?
We believe that absolutely everyone can benefit from learning how to live with compassion, empathy and kindness. But we also acknowledge that teens and children with serious life and death issues, including hard core addictions and violent behavior, should absolutely be under the care of a professional counselor, psychiatrist or medical doctor and may not respond well to this program. Seek professional help first! Having said that, I don’t want to eliminate anyone from the possibility of being a success story. If you see a glimmer of hope that your child is still in there, and your health professional gives the ok, then go for it!
