The Praed Foundation recently explored how people change through a new podcast, “Shift Shift Bloom!”.
Through the podcast, we examined how people change, why they change, and how people sustain the changes that are most important to them in their everyday lives.
The ten-episode ﬁrst season featured guests who consider themselves in one of three categories: change-makers, change embracers, or resistors of change. The guests on the podcast offered their personal stories of change, with themes of transgender identity (Jordan Constantine), fighting racism in historically racist institutions, (Dr. De Lacy D. Davis), child abuse survivor to advocate (Juliana Barton), and many more.
As many of you know, the IPH Center at the University of Kentucky and the Praed Foundation have created ‘The TCOM Channel’ on YouTube to facilitate improved communications about the good work happening in the international TCOM collaborative. Because of your interest and support, The TCOM Channel has become one of the 25% of the more than 500 million existing YouTube channels that has been successfully monetized. The TCOM Channel is now a YouTube Partner.
The 2022 TCOM Conference registration will be taking place September 21 – 27, 2022 with an in-person and virtual option. Registration for the conference is now live!
The Praed Foundation will be hosting 2 virtual workshops. The first workshop, the 2-Day TCOM Orientation, will focus on the Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) philosophy, and the TCOM Tools (CANS, ANSA, FAST). The 2nd workshop hosted in July 2022 is a Certified Trainer Training, which will focus on creating training materials that represent the core concepts of communimetrics and the TCOM framework.
In the first part of this blog, Ken McGill talked about how a whole-person approach requires a broader perspective of “needs” and how collaboration is required for transformation at the individual and systems level. In part 2, Ken continues to discuss how this can be achieved. He focuses on how human complexities require collaborative solutions, and how it takes a team to heal a village.
Ken McGill discusses how the TCOM framework comprise a whole-person approach, and how the TCOM tools can be used to support a whole-person understanding of those we serve. He discusses the importance in understanding a person’s needs and strengths. He conceptualizes a more broad view of need through “Hierarchies of Understanding” and how the next step in Systems of Care is to ensure that collaboration efforts are strong enough to meet not only Maslow’s pyramid of needs, but also needs outside of the individuals and families.
