- There is always a reason for the behaviour.
- Promoting a culture of comfort and safety.
- Recognizing situations that are potentially re-traumatizing.
- Reinforcing training for all staff to create a culture of compassion.
- Transforming language used to describe behaviour.
- Recognizing the role of relationship as a healing force
