Meet Deborah Rose of Council of Families for Children in Richardson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Deborah Rose.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
We originally started in Austin and moved to the Dallas area almost ten years ago.

CFC’s goal is to develop a worldwide, whole health organization, which acts as an agent of change.

We focus on the issues that prevent children and their families from achieving healthy, active, productive lives. We encourage and embrace alternative and integrative approaches that heal the mind, body and soul, as this is who we are. To do this, CFC is dedicated to providing education and support, collaborating with other agencies and promoting individual projects that aid to the betterment of an individual or family life.

Public awareness and sensitivity will help children and adolescents receive appropriate services to improve their fundamental opportunities to lead healthy and productive lives within their families.

Another equally important activity is to educate lawmakers, service providers, agency personnel, other educators, and the community regarding the issues that affect the lives and opportunities of children and adolescents with health needs and emotional support and guidance.

It is also vital that families be seen as experts concerning their child(ren) and not be “blamed and shamed” because of their child(ren)’s conditions or special needs and requirements. CFC sees the parents as equal participants in the planning and treatment necessary for the child’s recovery and valued for their expertise regarding the delivery and appropriateness of the services.

Family members should be valued and compensated, as would any other participant in the process

CFC teaches families and their children to advocate for themselves, and how to take control of their own recovery program, managing the quality of care and services they receive from service providers, the medical community and the school districts.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No. Funding issues have made us an entirely volunteer organization. Stigma also makes it difficult to find people that are comfortable seeking help.

Every one of our staff members are Intuitive Healing Advocates who facilitate the healing process through a variety of approaches, dealing with each client based on their spiritual, emotional and mental beliefs and interpretation of the world.

Harmonious Handwriting Therapy (HHT) is a science by which one is able to change personality traits by changing their handwriting and, in doing so, introduces new strokes which automatically eliminates the negative traits.

6. Reiki – Mikao Usui who is credited with rediscovering the root system. Reiki is a spiritual healing art with its roots in Japanese origin. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy.

Reiki also balances the mind and emotions.

7.

The treatment is non-invasive and works on the ethos of making change as simple and as pain free as possible.

EFT Tapping is a universal healing tool that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional, and performance issues. EFT operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way.

Even for physical issues, chronic pain, or diagnosed conditions, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can impede the natural healing potential of the human body
