MC3 Language:

Co-Occurring: Happening together at the same time and place, re: conditions including depression, drug abuse, trauma, mental illness, alcoholism, anger management issues, etc. 

Trauma-Informed Care: When a human service program takes the step to become trauma-informed, every part of its organization, management, and service delivery system is assessed and potentially modified to include a basic understating of how trauma affects the life of an individual seeking services. Trauma-informed organizations, programs, and services are based on an understanding of the vulnerabilities or triggers of trauma survivors that traditional service delivery approaches may exacerbate, so that these services and programs can be more supportive and avoid re-traumatization. 

Motivational Interviewing: Motivational interviewing (MI) is a counseling style that is goal-directed and seeks to gently help a person receiving services discovery why he or she is apprehensive to change. 

Strength-Based Treatment: Historically, treatment plans have been a list of all the things that are "wrong" with a person receiving services. With strength-based treatment planning, a client's strengths are the focal point of achieving the client's goals based on one's own characteristics and desire to succeed in one's own aspirations. 

Person Centered Care: Person-centered care refers to the practice of basing key long term care decisions on the client's individual needs, preferences, and expectations.
