Are You Enough?

This video by Jeanevra Peasron, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Director of Advocate2Create, is about showing that YOU ARE ENOUGH by challenging and demystified our belief that We Are Not, both in our relationship to self and to others.

In Memory of all of Those who have Died by Suicide

For anyone who is surviving a loss to suicide, we at A2C wish you much strength, wellness, and support during this time.  
Death by suicide is undiscriminating. Losing someone to suicide is an overwhelming and complex experience. 
Different from many other types of deaths, suicide leaves us questioning what caused our loved ones to take their lives. As we try to answer this question, we cannot help but to internalize the blame, feeling guilty, and thinking about what we could have done differently. This guilt usually comes in the form of “what ifs” or “if only.” Unfortunately, this is a part of the suicide grief experience of many individuals; it was definitely part of my suicide grief and of the many Survivors of Suicide whom I work with, so here are somethings that may help.
Whenever you find yourself thinking about what you believe you could have done differently had you known then what you know now, remember that you did not have this information then, and that you can only act upon …

O IAP – Intenção, Ação, e Percepção

Quantas vezes agimos com a melhor das intenções mas terminamos com desentendimento, brigas, e consequências negativas?
Este problema ou desentendimento infelizmente é muito comum em nossas vidas, mas não é impossível de resolver. Ele só requere que a gente entenda a relação entre Intenção, Ação, e Percepção, ou como a gente o-chama: O IAP. Intenção → Ação ← Percepção

I – Intenção é interna. Nossas intenções são geralmente representativas do que desejamos que aconteça. A menos que comuniquemos aos outros quais são nossas intenções, eles não podem ver/adivinhar. 
A – Nossas intenções guiam nossas ações. Diferente da intenção, a ação é externa. Ou seja, embora os outros não consigam ver nossas intenções, eles podem ver nossas ações.
P – Percepção também é interna; no entanto, é interno à pessoa que recebe ou observa as ações e não àquela que as dá. As percepções que os outros tem sobre nossas ações são baseadas nas interpretações que eles tem de tais ações.
Como funciona o IAP? Pense no conceit…

El IAP - Intención, Acción, y Percepción

¿Cuántas veces nosotros hacemos las cosas con la mejor de las intenciones pero terminamos con desentendimientos y peleas?
Este problema, o desentendimiento, desafortunadamente es muy común en nuestras vidas, pero no es imposible de resolver. Él sólo requiere que la gente entienda la relación entre la Intención, Acción, y Percepción, o como lo llamamos en nuestra firma A2C: El IAP.
Intención → Acción ← Percepción

I - Intención es interna. Nuestras intenciones son generalmente representativas de lo que deseamos ver suceder. A menos que hablamos a los demás, ellos no tienes como ver o adivinar nuestras intenciones.
A - Nuestras intenciones guían nuestras acciones. Diferente de la intención, la acción es externa. Quiere decir, mientras las personas no pueden ver nuestras intenciones, ellas pueden ver nuestras acciones.
P - Percepción también es interna; sin embargo, es interno a la persona que recibe o observa las acciones y no a la que las da. Las percepciones que los demás tienen sobre nuest…

The IAP - Intention, Action, & Perception

How many times have we done things with the best of intentions just to find ourselves in the worse of consequences?  Why does it feel that sometimes our words or actions, even coming from a good place, seem to get lost in translations, and we end up with unexpected fights rather than the expected good time?  These questions are actually not that difficult to answer; they simply require that we become aware of the relationship between Intention, Action, & Perception, or as A2C calls it: The IAP. Intention → Action ← Perception

I – Intention is internal. Our intentions are usually representative of our wants and our desired outcome, and unless we tell others what our intentions are, they cannot see them.
A – Our intentions guide our actions. Different from intention, action is external. That is, whereas people cannot see our intentions, they can see our actions. 
P – Perception is also an internal construct; however, it is internal to the person receiving or observing the actions and not …
