Our TURN Model Provides a Foundation For Healing
BSCO’s Counseling component is dedicated to providing services that minimize negative factors that cause violence and increasing protective influences that yield positive outcomes. Inspired by the work of NATAL in Israel, BSCO uses trained faith leaders and mental health professionals as trauma counselors to provide counseling services through a helpline and community ambassadors. Services are open to people of all beliefs and will only incorporate faith when requested.
