J-SAT works with human service agencies so that they can better create opportunities for all marginalized populations (e.g., ex-offenders, mental health, homeless, veterans, and alcohol and drug abuse) to move closer to the center-of-the-herd, and realize more of their true potential and make greater contributions to the world. We develop sustainable, place-based and community driven solutions for the mounting global problems that marginalized people are imminently qualified to address. We assist agencies and individuals within fields of human services in expanding their ability to learn how to progress, share their knowledge, become more self-aware and able to contribute to their community with greater balance and effectiveness.
Who we work with
We focus on helping corrections, mental health, alcohol and other drugs organizations achieve substantially greater success by implementing “Evidence-based Practices” (EBPs) and principles in their processes. Implementing EBPs to fidelity is no simple task, and our service has proven to be highly beneficial to these organizations. In addition to accumulating substantial knowledge and wisdom in this area, our years of experience have led us to emphasize staff development strategies for those organizations that rely on creating sustainable multiplying effects.
What we do
We provide immediate and progressive assistance to agencies in their quest to realize tangible returns from training staff in motivational interviewing, assessment tools and transforming staff from case managers into change agents. We are aware that change is often challenging work. To help in the challenges involved, we promote the utilization of quantitative foundations such as evidence-based and research-based practices. We also apply an adaptive change initiative philosophy to build the necessary practice replacement environment within the organization.
In carrying out our work we exert a profound allegiance to:
- Joining others in a fashion that promotes acceptance and decrease defensiveness
- Providing impartial feedback to supportively enhance discrepancies in the ‘client’s’ views
- Modeling successful alternatives
- Building self-efficacy
- Developing whole system perspectives.
