Yesterday on Smashing The Plateau, Peg Wright discussed how The Center For Great Expectations seeks to improve the lives of women and adolescents.
Here are some of her biggest influences:
1) My father, James Young
He was my mentor. He said to me, “Peg, you hire people who are better than you are. They make you look good.”
2) Gabor Maté
His book In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction affirms our treatment approach.
3) Anne Lamott
She is a very inspirational author.
He is a retired Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of Johnson & Johnson. He is a mentor of mine as well as a friend.
Debbie introduced me to what trauma-informed care should look like.
Adopting Howard’s Nurtured Heart Approach© at CGE inspires and energizes the staff each day. He is an amazing human being and I have great respect for what he’s doing.
