The 3-5-7 Model® in 2016!

For over a decade I have been presenting and training on the 3-5-7 Model® and, wow, have we come a long way! While the original version of the model is solid, we have learned so much since we began and while we may be nostalgic for the “old days”, we wouldn’t for a second go back.

We have learned from our partnering programs that it takes a sustained commitment over time to truly understand and integrate the 3-5-7 Model® framework into practice. The 3-5-7 Model® of 2016 includes programming that is more effective in clarifying, integrating and actualizing the model within organizations for long lasting impact of systems change at all levels. We have developed and refined several tools that take the guess work out of practice and that assist workers in using the directional approach that the 3-5-7 Model® provides. In 2016 our programming is better at ensuring that the 3-5-7 Model® is consistently utilized with fidelity and we are continually refining our system of coaching and mentoring to support programs and individuals.

In our January newsletter we will highlight our tools:

  • The 3-5-7 Model® Readiness Curriculum
  • The 3-5-7 Model® Workbook
  • The 3-5-7 Model® Skills Development Guide
  • The 3-5-7 Model® Evaluation and Outcome Tools

We know that many of you are using these in your practice but those of you who were trained in the more distant past may have missed out. If any of these tools are unfamiliar to you then we invite you to get to know the 3-5-7 Model® in 2016! Let’s join together in 2016 with a re-commitment to helping children, youth and families to grieve their losses and to build and rebuild relationships.
