Goal 1 Strategies

  • Create opportunities for new participants and peers to get to know one another.

  • Support members with identifying areas where they are the most and the least comfortable, and brainstorm ways to improve their experience.

  • Spend time listening to the person’s story and reflect back to them the strengths that you hear. Listen for and comment on positive attributes that you genuinely admire.

  • Identify the skills required to live in residential treatment. Applaud the skills they have and ask if they’d like to build new interpersonal skills.

  • Help the person create a schedule for themselves so that they know where and when to be at different activities.

  • To the degree possible, give JOH members options for outlining which program activities they’d like to attend and how they’ll spend their free time.
