therapeutic group home, we're finally seeing some improvements in wm. Huge improvements for wm. wm is beginning to recognize himself; he's developing a sense of self along with a small sense of empathy & respect. Again - for wm this is huge. We had a staffing earlier this afternoon - wm sat in the meeting & read each objective & responded to each goal. How he felt he was doing. He was honest about goals he needed improvement on. Even "confessed" to just dumping instead of sorting the recycling (one of his chores) when he wanted to do something else. He was accepting of feedback. Our entire team (along with therapist) was in attendance. Attachment therapist commented that she was proud to be a part of wm's team. A team that works together & insures the treatment plan is followed. She'd never seen such a smooth flowing group of people when it could be so very adversarial. by the way, the CD board jinx doesn't work in this case because wm doesn't live under my roof. That's my story & I'm sticking to it.
