“Are you at odds with someone or simply trying to improve trust and your ability to work together? Originally LEAP was developed to teach families, health professionals and responders how to better help people with mental illness. Today LEAP is also used by couples, families and businesses to heal strained relationships and build strong partnerships. LEAP Institute has training programs, videos, books and online resources proven to strengthen relationships and help turn ‘adversaries’ into allies.”
Relationships — Where Treatment & Recovery Begins
At LEAP® Institute we teach that whether you are working on treatment adherence, recovery or crisis intervention, trusting relationships are the key. LEAP® transforms difficult and untrusting relationships into strong partnerships.
Think of the goals you have for the person you’re trying to help and ask yourself: Are you winning on the strength of your argument? Has reason prevailed? How many months, years or decades have you tried?
“I never won on the strength of my argument, I won on the strength of my relationship.”
~Dr. Xavier Amador
Using LEAP®, a respectful, trusting relationship, is much closer than you might think possible. From there, your opinions and help matter; change and recovery become possible.
Build Trust • Heal Relationships • Become Partners
