Are You A Change Maker, Change Embracer, Change Resistor?

Shift, Shift…Bloom: A Podcast All About How People Change

The Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) framework acts as an approach on how to manage human serving systems (example: healthcare, child welfare, juvenile justice, mental health, education). TCOM focuses on shifting these systems away from just spending time with people, to seeing the work as transformational offerings by helping people change their lives.

The Praed Foundation, the organization that oversees the TCOM tools (Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths [CANS], Adult Needs and Strengths [ANSA], Family Advocacy and Support Tool [FAST], etc.) is interested in exploring the theme of transformation by attempting to understand how people change. One idea was to collect stories from people with different experiences to understand how they have changed and explore their personal change processes.

To explore personal transformation, the Praed Foundaiton partnered with ActuallyQuiteNice Studios and created the Shift, Shift…Bloom! podcast, which examines how people change, why they change, and how they 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. Conversations with host Kristen Cerelli explored the importance of mindset, personality, life circumstances, communities of support, and sources of inspiration on the process of transformation.
