By building resilience in people, we build a more resilient community for all. In addition to applying the principles of Brain Science, we have grown in our ability to demonstrate our impact in the community by moving towards evidence-informed practice.
Hours of direct client work at CUPS, paired with the literature around resilience, have led us to explore what types of support we can offer to build resilience and achieve better outcomes for our clients.
Let’s talk about how we use science and our understanding of trauma to inform our practice. One common question we find ourselves answering is, “what do you mean when you say you are based in science?” This is a big question, but we will start with the basics because the answer to this is the foundation of everything we do at CUPS.
At CUPS, we are innovators and trailblazers in our sector. Over the past 30 years we have moved from a traditional charity model to a become a science-based organization that is defining a new approach to the social challenges of poverty and trauma.
