The dilemma of what to call what we do and how we describe ourselves is the beginning of an interview with the Cottors. The process and the experience of what we do, the way of relating is more important than what we call it. Helping people to transform themselves and become who they would like to become is a goal that we have. The medical model which is deficit based is not a match for our desires to be strength based and looking for what works. In spite of events that happen that we didn’t plan for and certainly didn’t want to happen, we learn to deal with difficult situations how we language the things that happen to us makes all the difference in our being able to have an attitude of hope and mastery of our lives.
