What is Forward-Facing®?  Forward-Facing is a unique process for resolving our painful past while living a principle-based life here in the present.  It is the marriage of science-based self-regulatory skills paired with resilient intentional living.  Engaging these skills lowers stress symptoms while simultaneously enhancing quality of life and well-being.  The skills are deceptively simple and easy to implement.  Anyone can learn them in a short period of time…and then work the rest of our lives to master them.  While Forward-Facing is a bona fide protocol for addressing and resolving traumatic stress, it is equally effective for developing stress-management, resilience and optimization skill for professionals, parents, couples, athletes and performers.
